MEN’S TRACK AND FIELD
Iowa wins first title since 1929
Winning their first tag team championship since 1929, the Iowa men’s track team made history on Saturday at the Big Ten Indoor Championships in Geneva, Ohio.
The Hawkeyes straddled the strength of 10 top-three standings to rack up an academic record of 119 points at the SPIRE Institute.
The indoor title was only the fourth for Iowa in the history of the sport. The Hawkeyes last won a share of the Big Ten indoors title in 1963, sharing the championship with Michigan.
Iowa also won tag team titles in 1926 and 1929.
Saturday’s championship came after two Hawkeyes won gold, Peyton Haack in the heptathlon and James Carter Jr. in the long jump.
Iowa also benefited from the second finals of Wayne Lawrence Jr. at the 200 and 400-meter dashes, Woodbury Central High grad Alec Still at the 800 and Gratt Reed at the 60 hurdles.
Jamal Britt in the long jump, Austin West in the heptathlon, Josh Braverman in the 60 hurdles and Julien Gillum in the 600 took third place.
