Feb. 16, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana track and field team came away with four event wins as Indiana hosted the Hoosier Hills on Friday, Feb. 16.
Senior Kiwan Lawson won the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.71, his personal best and Indiana's best time this season. Junior Doug Dayhoff was second in the event in 21.87, while junior Keith Heerdegen finished fifth in 22.02.
"It's good to have three of the top five finishers," assistant coach George Freeman said. "Kiwan had a really great second half of the race, and really got fast going up the hill. Doug has good arm motion with his high hands and elbows. He had a good start and had a good race."
Junior Devin Moore won the long jump with his personal best of 6.95 meters.
The 4x400-meter relay team of sophomore John Gunnell, sophomore Leon Brown, sophomore Martin Stephen and senior Trey Warfield finished third with a time of 3:16.90.

"Several of our athletes competed in different events than usual as part of their training for the Big Ten Championships next weekend," interim head men's track and field coach Wayne Pate said. "This can help them focus on and make improvements in an aspect of their usual event."
Both the Indiana men and women next compete in the Big Ten Championships, Saturday-Sunday, Feb. 24-25. The Hoosiers host the men's championship, while the women travel to Illinois.
