Christiansen and Nicole Ali ran an
8:41.75 breaking the old mark of 8:46.45.
The next night, the foursome again
broke the record with a fourth-place
finish in the finals with an 8:39.37.
Wilson, a freshman from Altadena,
Calif., finished sixth in the 500-meter
run and Thacker, a senior AU-American,
finished sixth in the 55-meter dash.
Led by brilliant sophomore Roddie
Haley, the first runner to break one
minute in the 500-meter race, and dis
tance runner Paul Donovan, the Arkan
sas men captured a record-tying third
consecutive NCAA title.
The sensational 21-year-old Haley,
from Texarkana, Texas, broke the world
indoor best in the 500 for the second
consecutive night, clocking 59.82
seconds the first sub-one minute
time in history.
Friday night, Haley, the 1985 NCAA
outdoor 400-meter champion, had run
1:00.69 in the heats.
Saturday night, he led all the way
against a strong field, including Villan
ova's Edwin Modibedi, who also ran
under the old world indoor best, clock
It was the third time Haley has run
the 500 this year, and the third time he
had smashed the world indoor best.
Buoyed by Haley's remarkable per
formance, and victories by Donovan in
the 3,000-meter race and the 3,200
meter relay team, with a startling
comeback by Donovan on the final leg,
the Razorbacks amassed 49 points in
the two-day meet at the Myriad.

tied for third with 20 each.
Alabama was the winner of the
women's championship, capturing its
first indoor crown with a total of 41
Favored Texas finished second with
31, and Southern California and Ten
nessee tied for third with 26 each.
Donavan, a senior who won the
NCAA indoor 1,500-meter title last
year, took the 3,000 this year in 7:54.60,
after coming from third place around
the final turn to give the Razorbacks
the victory in the 3,200-meter relay in
In that closing drive in the relay,
Donovan passed Georgetown's Miles
Irish and Notre Dame's Jim Tyler, with
a surprising kick for a long-distance
Donovan's victory in the 3,000 clinch
ed the title for Arkansas.
