SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men's track team made waves against elite competition at the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark.

Prior to the meet, head coach Larry Wieczorek had identified seniors Erik Sowinski and Troy Doris as two athletes to watch; the pair delivered. Sowinski took first in the 800 meters with a time of 1:48.58 minutes, and Doris posted a winning length of 53-5 (16.28 meters) in the triple jump.

Other key performances included Nathan Prom's second-place finish in the 800 meters with a time of 1:51.72 minutes and Dan Davis' 8.08-second finish in the 60-meter hurdles — the fifth-best time in Iowa history.

The 1,600-meter relay team of Sowinski, Patrick Richards, Justin Austin, and Kaleb VanCleave finished fourth with a time of 3:11.20 minutes.

Teams were not scored at the Razorback, so some top Iowa runners were shelved to preserve their freshness for future meets. The Black and Gold will be back in action next weekend, both at the New Balance Invitational in New York City and the Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Ind.
