Men's recap: Garrett Zatlin

Women's recap: Sean Collins


The indoor track season is still young and many student-athletes have begun make their way back to campus. Expect to see far more exciting performances next weekend...


Indiana vs Tennessee Duals

800

(Men)

Indiana freshman Aaron Bennett was the first man to cross the line in a time of 1:54.06. Tennessee's Jose Parilla and Indiana's Daniel Michalski rounded out the top three with times of 1:54.20 and 1:54.21, respectively.

Indiana swept this event and were led Haley Harris. Harris ran 2:09.38 to beat teammates Mallory Mulzer and Bailey Hertenstein. Their times were 2:11.21 and 2:13.99, respectively. Harris’ time is good for NCAA #2 so far while Mulzer clocks in at #6 in the nation. Harris also sits in the top 10 in the mile as well.


Mile

(Men)

Cooper Williams moved up in distance to run the mile and the performance was better than expected. Williams took home the win with an NCAA leading time of 4:04. He has yet to run an 800 this season, but Williams is showing off his strength after running 2:23 for 1000 meters in December.


Teammate Ben Veatch finished runner-up with a 4:09. He also doubled in the 3000 meters (but we'll get to that later).


(Women)

Fellow Hoosier Kelsey Harris took home the mile win for Indiana in 4:48.99, adding another Hoosier to the top ten in the NCAA at the mile distance. Harris’ time moves her into an NCAA #3 position, making her the fifth Indiana athlete in the top 10. Teammate Jenna Barker placed 2nd in 4:56.15.


3000

(Men)

The Indiana trio of Ben Veatch, Joseph Murphy, and Bryce Millar went 1-2-3 with times of 8:21, 8:22, and 8:26, respectively. These weren't standout times, but it's nice to see that Veatch was able to run a respectable mile/3k double after redshirting the entire fall.


(Women)

Grace Walther concluded the Indiana sweep of the distance events with a 9:43.98 result. Teammate Hannah Stoffel beat out Tennessee’s Megan Murray, 9:51.97 to 9:53.33. Walthier’s time moves her into the #9 spot in the NCAA so far.
