ASU women, ACU men finish second at NCAA Track & Field Championships

The Angelo State women and Abilene Christian men both finished second at the 2009 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships in San Angelo, Texas.

The team titles came down to the final event, the 4x400 Meter Relay, on both sides.   On the women's side, Lincoln earned a three-point win over ASU, 85-82, by virtue of a first place win in the 4x400.  It was the best finish in school history for the Rambelles after a fourth-place finish in 2007.

St. Augustine's won the relay to edge ACU, 94-86, for its first title since 2001 which ended the Wildcats seven-year reign. 

The ACU women finished sixth (35 points) marking the first time since 2001 that the Wildcat men or women didn't win an indoor or outdoor track & field national title.

ASU's men totaled 27 points good for 8th place.  Tarleton State finished 29th and 55th in the men's and women's standings, respectively, while Texas A&M-Commerce's men were 49th.
