Andy Bayer Wins the Big Ten 5,000m, completes the double

Andy Bayer defended his 1,500m title, leading from wire-to-wire for a 1.15 second win, clocking a time of 3:44.24. Bayer's win is Indiana's 14th in the event. He then won the 5,000m title two hours later, outkicking 2011 Big Ten 5K champion Reed Connor of Wisconsin for the win in 13:54.90. Bayer becomes the third Big Ten athlete to ever win the 1,500/5,000 double, joining former Hoosiers Bob Kennedy (90, 91, 92) and Jim Spivey (81, 82). Bayer, Kennedy and Spivey are also the only Hoosiers to win consecutive 1,500m Big Ten titles. Bayer finishes his career with six Big Ten titles, joining teammate Derek Drouin as one of 22 Hoosiers all-time to win six or more conference crowns. Bayer scored 20 points in the meet. Indiana has won three straight Big Ten titles in the 1,500m, as Ben Hubers took the crown in 2011.
