Mostafa Hassan repeats as NCAA indoor shot put champion

WHAT'S NEXTKiana Horton will continue her run at the NCAA Indoor Championships with a 5 p.m. CT start time in the 400-meter final Saturday afternoon in College Station.

The UK track and field team earned four medals at the 2018 indoor NCAA Championships over the weekend, which helped the No. 3 women's team secure a place on the podium.

World under-20 200m champion Michael Norman stormed to victory in the 400m, clocking 44.52 in only his third ever race indoors over the distance to improve the previous record set by Kerron Clement in 2005 by 0.05.

Ciattei took second in 3:58.36 with Prakel third in 3:58.59. The women tied for 20th with 11 points.

For most of the athletes, the season wrapped up on February 23-24 in Geneva, Ohio, at the Big Ten Championships. She registered a first place finish in the weight throw (17.49m) at the Maine State Open on February 24. Later, she won her second-straight 3000 title with a 9:29.39 finish.

"What a great time to finish up the indoor season with an All-American race", said Carleton head coach Donna Ricks.

The squad that earned All-NE10 honors for the first time since 2013, with their runner-up finish, and All-New England accolades broke the school record that was set in 2012 at the New England Championships. In the pentathlon this year, Schultz accelerated by claiming the top NCAA score with a 4,502 scored at the Texas Tech Shootout on February 9.

"This is a blessing, I honestly did not really think I would be here", Devore said. "I couldn't see what the time was from as far away I was from the screen".

Senior Tiffany Flynn will compete in triple jump.

He vanquished any demons he may have harbored in the 1,000 meters, running a personal best 2:56.23 to clinch the win. Both women led the race at one point, but fell back into the pack on the final lap.

"Whatever the team needs me to do, I'll do", Farrow added. The junior will be one of 10 remaining runners (16 original qualifiers) in the mile on Saturday, as the top four times in each heat received automatic berths in Saturday's final along with the next two fastest times between the two heats. "I had good throws today, and so I'm really pleased to finish off that way". "It was honestly a blessing to make it to finals and compete to the best of my abilities".

The women's 4x400 closed out the championships, and the Aggies finished on a positive note, clocking a season-best 3:31.64 to finish sixth in the race. "We saw what we could do at conference, and now we're going into nationals ready to perform better". "I could tell he thought the whole week very confidently that he was going to win this shot put title".
