NCAA Weekend Review – 02/04/2012


NCAA action kicked into gear last weekend with a host of good performances from the current crop. However, it was the old guard, in the form of Chris Gowell of Baylor, who stole the show with a 1:49 in the 800m, backed up with a win the mile against a extremely competent field. Gowell’s race is shown below. He benefitted from a sensible pace early on and close what looked like an unassailable lead, thanks to a great last 300m. He looks well placed to have a good 2012 after a somewhat subdued 2011 by his standards.

There were plenty of wins from current athletes, coming from Brooks, Ulm, McLoughlin and Graham. Natalie Gray and Ruth Senior showed a return to form with a solid comeback run in the 1500m in Austin, TX, while the Wades were competitive with solid opening efforts over the barriers

Our friends at Iona once again took to the track in their meet-ticking mode, running 400m in over a minute. Chapeau! Lee Carey led home Providence teammate Shane Quinn for two PBs, in what was a comeback race after a prolonged stint out with injury.

Next week see it all begin on the West Coast.

We’ll bring you a preview later in the week.
