Less than 35 minutes after winning the 5000, Edward Cheserek used a 3:52 anchor split to dispatch the fastest American collegiate miler in history and give Oregon a second straight DMR title.
America x 2. Virginia's Henry Wynne and Oklahoma State's Kaela Edwards got their first NCAA titles.
Day 1 of NCAAs was full of drama as the day saw Molly Seidel claim her 3rd consecutive NCAA title in a near NCAA record and the Georgetown women grab an NCAA DMR victory after several years of close misses. The mile and women's 800 heats went mostly to form, but the men's 800 saw the pre-race rankings and most LetsRunner's prediction contests tossed aside as three of the top four seeds failed to make the final.
Dominant wins by Mollly Seidel and King Cheserek.

2016 NCAA M 3K/5K Preview: Can Anyone Prevent Edward Cheserek From Taking His NCAA Title Haul Into The Double Digits?

Cheserek ran the #2 collegiate 3k time ever at Millrose (7:40.51) and is the heavy favorite in the 5k. He's favored to sweep both, but could be vulnerable if he runs the DMR as well on Friday. Syracuse's Justyn Knight, Villanova's Patrick Tiernan, Stanford's Sean McGorty and Washington's Izaic Yorks will all be looking to take him down in the 3k.
