Men's 800 Semis: Kessler & Miller go sub-1:44, Hoppel looks easy in win

Heat 1: 

In a field that included two Olympians, it was Josh Hoey who walked (ran) away with the win; clocking 1:45.73–just ahead of defending trials champion, Clayton Murph. Darius Smallwood of Penn State lead the field at the bell–coming through in 51.98 seconds; just ahead of Isaiah Harris. Harris would take the lead on the backstretch and hold it until the homestretch, where he was ultimately overtaken and finished in fourth, he would not qualify for the final.

Heat 2:  

In a massive PB, it was Hobbs Kessler who would win his heat in 1:43.71. It was Charles Jones who paced the field through in a reasonable 51.14. Brandon Miller moved to the lead with 300 to go and Kessler would slot in behind him at 600. The pair was clear of the field as they fought the final 100 with Miller getting out leaned running 1:43.73 for second. The rest of the heat was quick with Abraham Alvarado running 1:44.44 to qualify in third and Georgetown’s Tinoda Matsatsa finishing in fourth running 1:45.12 and grabbed the final time qualifier. 

 Heat 3:

Bryce Hoppel wasted no time getting through to the final, running 1:44.01 from gun to tape for the win. After hitting the bell in 51.29 seconds, Hoppel pulled away and looked comfortable crossing the line. Jonah Koech finished in second, nearly half a second behind Hoppel. The recently sponsored Eric Holt nabbed the final-time qualifying spot but was later DQ'ed, clocking 1:45.05–just behind Shane Cohen, the defending NCAA champion; who used his signature kick to sneak into the final.

Men’s 400 Hurdles Semi-Finals: Rai Benjamin Shuts Down Field

Heat 1:

Over the final 150, it was world medalist Trevor Bassitt who pulled away to win his semi-final in 49.02. It was Alabama’s Chris Robinson who was out quickly through the first half of the race before getting passed by Bassitt on the turn. Robinson almost ran out of steam the final straight but was able to fend off an attack from James Smith

Heat 2:

Caleb Dean continues his positive momentum from NCAA’s–beating Khallifah Rosser in 48.92 seconds. Dean took the lead over the first hurdle and never looked back, building a good lead over the final 200 meters. Vance Nillson, who set the U.S. HS record over the 300-meter hurdles earlier this year finished in third, running 49.77; good for a new personal best. 

Heat 3:

Are we even surprised? It was all Rai Benjamin as he got out quick and then stepped off the gas running 47.97 to win his heat. Last year's second placer at USA’s CJ Allen sat behind and got dragged to a 48.16 to finish second in the heat. This heat was the fastest one as Aldrich Bailey was in third but was quicker than all the other heats running 48.69. David Kendziera also made it on time as well, running 49.22.

Women’s 1500 Semifinals: Hiltz wins St. Pierre, NAU’s Congdon clocks 4:02.79

Heat 1:

It was world indoor medalist Nikki Hiltz who took the win in the first heat with a strong final 100 running 4:01.40. The first lap of the heat was taken by Virginia Tech’s Lindsey Butler who brought the field out in 48 seconds before relinquishing the lead to Heather MacLean who slowed the pace down to a 67.28 second lap. Elle St. Pierre had enough of pushing the pace the next lap running a 64.13. The field was six at the bell and dropped Sage Hurta-Klecker with 300 to go so there was little question as to who would make the final. Sinclaire Johnson, Heather MacLean, Cory McGee, and Elle St. Pierre took the automatic qualifying spots. 

Heat 2:

Elise Cranny took a different approach from her 1500-meter prelim and put her foot on the gas from the gun, leading the pack through 800 meters in 2:10.28. But after a move from Addy Wiley at the bell, Cranny would ultimately finish in second–only behind Emily Mackay; who won in 4:02.46. The biggest run of the second heat belonged to NAU’s Maddi Congdon; who ran 4:02.79–good for a 5.02 second personal best and the third-fastest time ever by a collegian. The second heat would account for the time qualifiers: Dani Jones and Christina Aragon.

Heat 1: Tonea Marshall got out well in the middle of the track and never looked back running 12.41 to win her heat. Last years fifth-place finisher Tia Jones struggled finishing fourth in the heat.

Heat 2: In a heat where everyone would advance, Masai Russell and Alaysha Johnson decided to make a statement. Johnson got out of the blocks quickly but was hunted down by Russell who ran a personal best of 12.35 while Johnson would run a season’s best of 12.37

Heat 3: Christina Clemons had no problem taking down her heat running 12.56 to win the heat by .21. World champion Nia Ali decided to take the day off however, knowing that everyone would advance out of her heat she jogged a 20.38 to finish last by over six seconds. Ali said that her warmup did not go as planned and wanted to make sure she was putting herself in the best position to make the team. 

Heat 4: Keni Harrison was not fazed by the NCAA champion Grace Stark, besting her in a time of 12.49–a new season’s best. At 41 years old Lolo Jones, who last made the Olympics in 2012 finished in last place, running 14.86.
