SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men’s track and field team took advantage of the Last Chance Meet this past weekend.

The squad added two big provisional qualifying times that also happened to be school records.

Freshman Jeff Thode earned first place in the mile with a time of 4:03:07, beating the previous Iowa record set in 1981. Steven Willey was the other record-breaker, racing to a 46.75 second-place finish in the 400 meters.

An unfortunate miscue the baton cost the 4-by-400 meter relay team a chance to automatically qualify for the NCAA championships — the team ended up eighth.

Results will be released today for the marks necessary to grab a coveted spot in the NCAA meet that take place this weekend in Fayetteville, Ark. Several Hawkeyes have already provisionally qualified, and they will be eager to hear if their marks have earned them a spot at the elite event.
