2013 in Review


With 2014 almost upon us, we look back at some of the best moments of 2013.  In our second full year covering NCAA Track and Field, there were plenty of great performances, but we’ve selected a handful of our favourite, and most impressive moments of 2013.

5 – We introduced our ‘Day in the Life’ series taking a more in-depth look at various schools around the country

4 – Butler ladies team bronze at NCAA XC

Finishing off a tremendous season, the Butler girls (Good, Clark, Legg) took home some silverware from Terre Haute with a gutsy run for third.

3 – Lorraine Ugen and Freya Jones take home NCAA Outdoor Golds

The TCU jumper, and Georgia thrower, respectively gave the British contingent a first day to remember at Nationals with golds.

2 – Kate Avery finishes third in NCAA XC

The Iona athlete had certainly approached the Big Dance in a ‘under the radar’ fashion, but ignored the howling wind and biting cold to nearly pull of the shock of the year, only narrowly being reigned in over the last few hundred meters.

1 – Chris O’Hare runs the Collegiate Record in the Indoor Mile

The Tulsa student came back one year after seeing BYU foe, Miles Batty, take the record down to 3:54 at the Millrose Games. One year on, the same meet, the same venue, Chris destroyed the record by almost two seconds to go second in the UK all time list, and set a new Scottish record for the indoor mile with a 3:52.9 clocking.

Technically not an NCAA moment but it was also great to see Chris O’Hare make the world final in the 1500m, and Lorraine Ugen make the Championships too under the British flag.
