COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State men’s track and field team will be represented at the 2014 NCAA Indoor Championships by seven members of the team who have recorded qualifying times this season.
The championships take place Friday and Saturday, March 14-15, in Albuquerque, N.M.
The Buckeyes will be well represented in the 60-meter hurdles as senior Demoye Bogle and redshirt freshman Donovan Robertson will contend for the gold. Robertson is fresh off a silver medal performance at the Big Ten indoor championships in the event in which he finished in a time of 7.65 seconds. His time tied Bogle for the school record in the event. Bogle set the record earlier this season at the Buckeye Classic.
Junior Timothy Faust will compete in the 200-meter dash for the Buckeyes. Faust earned a pair of silver medals at the Big Ten indoor championships, one in the 60-meter dash in which he ran the third-fastest time in OSU program history, and another in the 200-meter with his person-best time of 20.77 seconds. His run is ranked number two in OSU program history and is a top-10 time in the NCAA this season.
The Ohio State 4×400-meter team – sophomore Champ Page, senior Jordan Rispress, senior Javon Walker and freshman Lamar Bruton – cruised to a gold-medal time of 3:07.47 at the Big Ten’s and will now look to compete for a NCAA championship. The winning time was the third-fastest in OSU indoor history and among the Top 15 times in Division I this season.
