Leah O'Connor will look to be the first woman to repeat in the steeple since Jenny Barringer in 2009. Shelby Houlihan will look to be just the third woman in history to win back-to-back NCAA titles in the 1500. Natoya Goule has won 3 NCAA titles but she faces a LOADED field.
Tabor Stevens, the NCAA XC champ and fastest American collegiate steepler last year, got a big win, so did German Fernandez, and Michael O'Hara got four of them. More track action, coaching advice, and a chance encounter with Geoffrey Kamworor in the airport which reminded us of Paul Tergat and Moses Tanui meeting President Bush.
Alabama's Alex Amankwah won the 800 in 1:45.91 over Ryan Schnulle (1:46.89). Rhianwedd Price took the 1500 in 4:11.67.
