Cougars place seventh at NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships

Meghan Hunter led the way for BYU on the final day of competition as she took third place overall in the 800m.

A successful showing for the Cougars at the NCAA Division 1 Indoor Track & Field Championship came to a close last night in Boston.

After a stellar day one headlined by the Distance Medley Relay team winning the national championship, day two held more in store for BYU as Meghan Hunter found herself on the podium after running a personal best in the 800m.

Her time of 2:02.15 broke her previous record by two hundredths of a second and helped her maintain her spot as the third fastest indoor 800m runner in BYU women’s history.

Lexy Halladay-Lowry finished fourth overall in the 3000m after clocking in a time of 8:53.08. She was followed by fellow BYU runners Riley Chamberlain and Sadie Sargent who finished in sixth and ninth respectively.
