LRC Men's Day 1 Recap: Wheating Beats Ulrey In DMR Duel
Andrew Wheating got the baton in 10th(?) place, yet he anchored Oregon to the DMR win and a crucial 10 points at the NCAA championships. In the process, he kicked down Dorian Ulrey, supposedly the best miler in the NCAAs. Wheating's split was a modest 4:01.23 thanks to the leaders slowing down and letting him get back in it.
In the 5k,
David McNeill got the win over Sam Chelanga, both running sub-13:40.

Eaton's Day 1 score would be leading the IAAF World Indoor Champs after Day 1 (Olympic champion Bryan Clay has the lead there). Duke's HS world-beater Curtis Beach is in 13th.
