Oklahoma State redshirt freshman middle distance runner and former Templeton High standout Savannah Camacho finished second in the women’s 800-meter run in 2 minutes, 5.53 seconds at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M.
Oregon senior Laura Roesler won the race in 2:03.85, and Oklahoma State freshman Kaela Edwards took third in 2:05.72.
Phyllis Francis had two record-setting runs, and Edward Cheserek swept the distance races to help Oregon win the team titles.
Francis sprinted down the backstretch in the 1,600-meter relay to catch Texas’ Ashley Spencer at the tape, giving the Ducks 44 points — a half-point better than the Longhorns for a fifth straight championship.
Francis and her teammates finished in 3:27.4, just ahead of Texas at 3:27.42, for a college indoor mark. Earlier, Francis set an American indoor record in the 400 at 50.46 seconds. She was even faster in the relay, finishing her leg in 50.44.
The Ducks won the men’s title with 62 points, eight more than Arkansas. Cheserek’s performance won the 5,000 on Friday night in 13:46.67, and took the 3,000 on Saturday in 8:11.59.
