Two More School Records Fall at Notre Dame

Story Links

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Two more school records came tumbling down at concluding day of the Meyo Invitational.  After two records fell on day one, the Indiana track and field team was just getting started.

Daniel Kuhn did it again.  In the 800m run he established the new school record, the Meyo Invitational record and the fastest time in the NCAA this season.  A week after breaking his 600m school record, he dusted the field in the 800m run with a time of 1:46.42.  He was aided by a tremendous rabbiting job by Adam WallaceJordan Huntoon finished third in the event with a personal best time of 1:49.67, the eighth fastest time in school history.  On the women's side, Kendell Wiles finished ninth with a time of 2:09.96.

Katherine Receveur has been nothing short of spectacular throughout her sophomore campaign.  The All-American broke the school record in the 3,000m run with a time of 9:03.71, which currently ranks as the quickest time in the NCAA.  She eclipsed the mark previously held by Michelle Dekkers.  Receveur pairs the record with the 5,000m school record she already held.  On the men's side, Jason Crist captured silver with a time of 8:02.48.  His time currently ranks inside the top 15 nationally.

Teammates Kyle Mau and Joe Murphy nabbed the top two spots in the world-famous Meyo Mile.  Mau, an academic All-Big Ten selection, crossed first with a time of 4:00.37, while Murphy took second with a time of 4:02.01.  Mau's time ranks 11th in the NCAA and fourth in the Big Ten.  On the women's side, Brenna Calder ran a gutsy race, turning in a seventh place finish with a time of 4:38.88.  Her time ranks fourth on the school's all-time indoor list and places her inside the top 20 nationally.

After fouling on his first two throws, Willie Morrison recovered nicely to place second in the men's shot put with a throw of 19.29m (63-3.5).  David Schall finished fourth in the event with a mark of 18.22m (59-9.5).  In the women's shot put, both Hoosiers hit personal best marks.  Freshman Khayla Dawson took bronze with a mark of 15.88m (52-1.25), which ranks seventh in school history.  Nycia Ford had her best career outing in the event, finishing seventh with a throw of 15.07m (49-5.5).

The Indiana track and field team will be back in action six days from now as host of the Hoosier Hills Invitational.  The meet is tentatively scheduled to begin at 3:45 p.m. with the women's 60m dash semi-finals.
