In its final tune-up before competing in Big Ten Indoor Championships, Iowa track and field concluded the regular season at the Alex Wilson Invitational hosted by Notre Dame.

While most of the squad did not compete at Notre Dame in preparation for Big Ten’s, Iowa did send a small group of sprinters and mid-distance runners to South Bend. On the men’s side, Chris Thompson, Austin Lietz, Noah Larrison, and Tyler Olson made up the field for the Hawkeyes.

Thompson (47.85), Lietz (48.95), and Larrison (49.22) all competed in the 400 meters. Thompson finished third in the event, with Lietz and Larrison earning 12th and 13th place, respectively.

Olson competed in the 800 meters, where he finished 18th, running a time of 1:53.83. The time marks a personal best for Olson in the event.

With the regular season now behind it, Iowa now turns to postseason competition.

The Big Ten Indoor Championships will be held Feb. 22-23 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The NCAA Indoor Championships will follow on Mar. 8-9 in Birmingham, Alabama.
