After the 4,000-meter head races, TU advanced the Collegiate 4+ and Collegiate 8+ to the OG&E Night Sprints.

"I am a very happy coach," Head Coach Kevin Harris said. "This team performed really well for the first time out of the gate this year. We've changed some things in our practice and I love the way the team has reacted to try to get faster. It was a great but long day and I am exited about to get back and help this team get even faster."
