FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — University of Iowa junior Jamal Britt won silver in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 7.52 at the 2021 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday. Britt set a school record for the second straight day and registered the highest national finish in the 60-meter hurdles in program history.
The Hawkeyes earned five All-America honors this weekend (one first team, three second team, one honorable mention). Britt earned first-team All-America honors with his performance in the 60-meter hurdles. Mallory King, Peyton Haack, and Austin West received second-team recognition following their performances in the 800 meters and heptathlon. Wayne Lawrence, Jr. earned All-America honorable mention honors in the 400 meters.
“I’m super proud of Jamal today, to come back after a disappointing fourth-place finish in the Big Ten meet to become the NCAA runner-up is a testament to his drive and determinations to be the best. He’s a great representation of our team and what we expect to do at the NCAA Championships. I can’t wait to see what Jamal and his teammates do this outdoor season.”
The Hawkeyes open the outdoor season at the end of March. The complete 2021 outdoor schedule has not yet been announced.
