1500m Semifinals (7:46 p.m. CT)

Sophie O'Sullivan paced the field just like she did during the season as the 2023 NCAA leader in this event as she finished in the top spot with 4:09.81. She was followed by Maia Ramsden of Harvard with a PR, then Margot Appleton of Virginia, and Katelyn Tuohy of NC State, who will attempt the ambitious 1500m/5K double this week in a bid to become the second woman to do it in history and the first to complete the double in the same day. 

Tuohy had control of the race heading into the final turn, but O'Sullivan made a decisive move to get ahead of her and when Tuohy tried to respond and swing around down the straight, Appleton was right next to her and she found herself boxed in. The top runners finished five-wide in the first section. 

A protest is currently underway for heat one. 


  1. Sophie O’Sullivan, Washington: 4:09.58
  2. Maia Ramsden, Harvard: 4:09.81
  3. Margot Appleton, Virginia: 4:09.824

400m Semifinals (9 p.m. CT)

WOW. Britton Wilson made 49.36, a meet and facility record, look casual as she seemingly jogged her way toward the top qualifying spot from heat two. She will go on to attempt the nearly unspeakable 400m/400m hurdles double—which no one has ever conquered—this week, and she sure looks fit enough for the task. Rhasidat Adeleke turned the other sub-50 performance of the night with 49.86 in heat one.

  2. Rhasidat Adeleke, Texas: 49.86

800m Semifinals (9:14 p.m. CT)

Puns aside, LSU's Michaela Rose crushing a 2:00.31 facility record was a solid statement, followed by runner-up Valery Tobias of Texas delivering 2:00.68 also from section three. 


  1. Michaela Rose, LSU: 2:00.31

  9. Aurora Rynda, Michigan: 2:03.368

400m Hurdles Semifinals (9:30 p.m. CT)

Surprise, surprise... Britton Wilson, who is somehow completely resistant to lactic acid, made 54.67 look pedestrian as she completed yet another incredible step toward making her 400m/400m hurdles double a reality. Chastity Pickett of Campbell, who finished second overall and second to Wilson in 55.62 in heat one, opted to gun it in the beginning to put a gap on Wilson, which ultimately paid off with a PR and entry to the final.


  1. Britton Wilson, Arkansas: 54.67
  2. Chastity Pickett, Campbell: 55.62
  3. Savannah Sutherland, Michigan: 55.70

  9. Lashanna Graham, Clemson: 56.02

After finishing third a year and second indoors, the Nebraska junior finally realized her dream of reaching the top of the podium, winning the women's shot put title with a facility-record throw of 19.28m/63-3.25

Top 10:

  1. Axelina Johansson, Nebraska: 19.28m

Decathlon 1500m (9:56 p.m. CT) & Final Results

COLLEGIATE RECORD! Texas's Leo Neugebauer's grand total of 8836 points stands above all other NCAA and Mike A. Myers facility performances, and runner-up Kyle Garland of Georgia helped push him there. 

After trading leads with Garland through the first six events, Neugebauer began to build separation and leads with 8205 points through nine events in his quest to win the decathlon title in front of a home crowd on Day 2. 

Neugebauer, a junior, wrapped up the first day of competition with a personal-best in the 400m, concluding the first day with a five-event score of 4591 points, 21 more than Garland.

Although the two remained fairly close throughout the next day, the pole vault gave Neugebauer the edge he was seeking as he earned a 205-point lead over Garland with a PR of 5.21m. He continued his lifetime-best tear in the javelin, and was ultimately victorious despite Garland's season-best effort with a 4:43.27 to Neugebauer's 4:48.00.

Top 10:

  1. Leo Neugebauer, Texas: 8836
  2. Kyle Garland, Georgia: 8630

4x400m Relay Semifinal (10:48 p.m. CT)

Texas's squad, which entered the meet with the fastest time of the season (3:23.27), won't make an appearance in the final after being DQ'd. This will take 10 potential points off the board for the Longhorns, but they should still comfortably attain the team title. Arkansas’ depth in the 400m will make them tough to beat in this event—in the semifinals, they cruised to a 3:25.91.

  2. Texas A&M: 3:27.05
  3. USC: 3:27.88
