Senior runner Jon Grey turned in another top performance Friday. Grey raced to a fifth place overall showing at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships with a career best time of 13:46.12 in the 5000-m event.

Grey’s place earned him his second All-American award.

According to Tribeathletics.com, Grey held back early to remain in the main pack. He started making his move with about 2400-m remaining and improved from 14th to 7th over the next 800-m.

Grey’s time ranks second-best all-time for a College competitor on an indoor track. Matt Lane ’01 holds down the top spot with a time of 13:43.36, which garnered him second place at the 2001 NCAA Championships.
