In his second track race since winning Olympic gold and his first race of 2017, Matt Centrowitz coasted to an easy win. Behind pacer (and former Oregon Project athlete) Ciaran Ó Lionáird, Centrowitz pulled away in the first 400 meters. Once Ó Lionáird dropped out, Centro was all alone in the lead and was never challenged. His 7:49.89 is a UW Indoor Preview meet record.
Gonzaga's Troy Fraley was second in 8:00, and professionals Craig Lutz and Dan Huling were third and fourth in 8:01 and 8:03. Centrowitz's 3000m PR is 7:40, so tonight was a solid performance from him.Complete results are here.
