UPDATE: SU Runner Hurdles Into Record Books

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. - A local college student has raced his way into the record books.

On Saturday afternoon, Salisbury University sophomore Luke Campbell, won his second 60-meter hurdles title, at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships.

Campbell finished the race in 7.75 seconds, the fastest time in Division III history. This makes him the third men's track and field student-athlete in school history to have won that title twice.

Campbell said of the win "It was definitely nerve-wracking throughout the race. It was a sigh of relief as the wave of emotions came over me. Coming through at the end and beating him - it was euphoria." He added "It definitely means a lot. It's awesome to think I have the fastest time in Division III and I can only go up from here. It's a sigh of relief that I can stop looking at this person or this record and focus on getting stronger and faster in the off season."

Salisbury University junior, Tyler Austin, also attended the meet, third NCAA championship event of his career, competing in the 60-meter dash, earning a seventh place finish.
