FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A school record highlighted the first day of the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships for the Texas Longhorns as sophomore Senoj-Jay Givans set the new standard in Burnt Orange in the men’s 60 meters duringFriday’s preliminaries.
Senoj-Jay Givans followed up his Big 12 Conference title with another impressive run during the prelims of the 60 meters at the NCAA Championships. Givans crossed the line in 6.57 seconds to break the school record of 6.58. He finished second in his heat and posted the No. 2 time in the prelims.
“A huge PR and school record for Senoj-Jay Givans,” said Head Coach Mario Sategna. “When you line up in the 60, there’s very little room for error, and he did a phenomenal job of executing his race, especially going out there in lane 8. I’m excited about some huge possibilities.”
By breaking the school record in the 60 meters, Givans represents the third school record to be broken by the men’s team this season joining Zack Bilderback (400m) and Craig Lutz (5000m).
