Deng's Personal Record Paces Gophers in Friday Action

Feb. 8, 2013

Friday Results

AMES, Iowa  - Redshirt freshman Goaner Deng set a new personal record in route to an individual title in the 400-meter dash on Friday, crossing the finish line at 47.89 seconds to win the event at the Iowa State Classic.

Deng's time was the fastest in the event by a Gopher this season and the eighth fastest time in school history.

Meanwhile, Sean King finished with the meet's top preliminary time in the 60-meter dash at 6.70 seconds. The senior's performance just missed his personal record of 6.68 seconds (set earlier this year at the Bill Bergan Invitational) although the finish does rank third all-time in the event in the school record book.

The No. 8 Gophers also picked up a fourth-place finish in the 800-meter run finals from Michael Bolland, who came across the line at 1:53.12 for a new personal record.

Minnesota returns to action on Saturday at the Iowa State Classic, the Husky Open and the 2013 SPIRE NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Team Invitational.
