Men's DMR: Notre Dame Surprises

Given the depth of this field and the fact that a sub-4 mile wasn't good enough to get into nationals this year, it's hard to believe that a 4:00 anchor won the Men's NCAA DMR. But that's just what happened. In fact, there were only three sub-4 minute 1600's in the entire field which pales in comparison to last year where the top 7 teams' anchors all broke 4 with an impressive 3:53 from Indiana University's Andy Bayer. This year, Notre Dame enjoyed the lead early on, but a slower 800m leg put them in 3rd going into the anchor and a modest 2:01 first 800 allowed a few more teams back in it. Bayer brought IU back from 6th with a 57.4 first 400 and BYU's Miles Batty ran a smart leg moving up gradually over the whole race, brining his team back from 7th. However, Notre Dame' Jeremy Rae benefited from having to do less work at the start and was able to get the win, holding off IU's Bayer in 2nd and a fast closing Batty in 3rd. Batty had the fastest leg with 3:57.98.

Women's DMR: Katie Flood Lives Up To the Hype And Delivers Washington the Title

In the women's DMR, Florida dominated early on and spread out the field, but a slow 800m leg and a tactical 1600 let just about every team back in the race as they all bunched up with several laps to go. There was a big move by Georgetown's Emily Infeld with 2 laps left, but a fresh Katie Flood covered it easily and kicked home the last 150m to win it for Washington with a 4:34.02 leg. Flood is the collegiate leader in the mile this year, but decided to pass on the open to be fresh for the DMR and is also doing the 3k tomorrow. It paid off big as she brought Washington from 8th to 1st on the anchor. Also worth noting that the second fastest 1600m leg came from Dartmouth's Abbey D'Agostino with a 4:35.75 to bring her team back from 7th to 3rd.
