Bjorn Seeliger (Cal) – 18.87
Ryan Perham (Arizona) – 19.39
Daniel Krueger (Texas) – 19:47
Cal’s Bjorn Seeliger, who’s tied as the 2nd-fastest man in history in this event, took the win tonight with a 18.87, the only man under last year’s NCAA invite time. His teammate Jack Alexy took 4th in 19.49.
The Arizona Wildcats had a bit of a surprisingly strong showing in this event. Senior Ryan Perham took 2nd in 19.39, which appears to his second new lifetime best today. The Wildcats had a pair of freshmen, Tommy Palmer (19.55) and Billy Oates (19.63) finish 6th and 7th, while Marin Ercegovic also made the A-final, but was DQ’d.
