DES MOINES, Iowa – Mubarik Musa placed fifth in the 10,000-meters, Brant Haase finished sixth in the 5,000 and the women’s 4x1,600 team set a new school record at the Drake Relays on Thursday night.
Musa finished in 30 minutes, 10.81 seconds, which is the fastest time on The Summit League performance list and was the third-best collegiate time in the race. Trent Lusignan, who competed unattached, won the race in 29:55.69. Musa shaved 34 seconds off the 10,000 time he posted last weekend at the Mt. SAC Relays (30:44.57) and topped the previous league-best time by 28 seconds (30:38.93).
Haase also set a new league-best time while finishing sixth in the 5,000 with a time of 14:18.92. His time was over two seconds faster than the previous league standard of 14:21.17 set by teammate Jeff Mettler. Matt McClintock of Purdue won the race in 14:01.33.
The 4x1,600 relay team of Amber Eichkorn, Katie Wetzstein, Megan Hilson and Jilanne Doom also recorded a top-10 finish, placing seventh with a time of 20:11.02. That time broke the school record of 20:26.57 set at last season’s Drake Relays.
The Coyotes also had a 14th-place finish in the men’s 4x1,600 (17:37.87) and a 25th-place finish from Britni Waller in the women’s 10,000 (39:06.71).
