A pair of Hoosiers also competed in the 5,000 meters as Bart Phariss placed 11th (14:18.35) and Chad Andrews finished 18th (14:39.61).
Emily Tharpe posted a mark 3.9 meters in the pole vault, a provisional qualifier, but not her top of mark of the year as she cleared 3.91 at the Big Ten Championship.
The Hoosiers distance medley relay team placed sixth with a time of 11:41.99, a season best for IU. A trio of Hoosiers competed in the 800 meters. Courtney Bell led the way with an 8th place finish with a time of 2:12.11. Mindy Peterson ran a 2:14.93 which was good for 15th place while Audrey Giesler finished 18th with a time of 2:15.59.
The Hoosiers will now wait to find out which provisional times will earn a trip to the NCAA Championship next weekend.
