Day 1 Recap

NAMPA, Idaho (3/10/12) - Junior Peter Callahan finished sixth in the mile at the 2012 NCAA Division I Indoor Championships today in Nampa, Idaho.

Callahan pushed into sixth place after going outside on the final bell lap to speed past a few of his competitors. He finished with a time of 4:02.66, exactly one second behind the national champion. Callahan would earn three points in the event.

This is Callahan's first NCAA championship.

Earlier this indoor season, Callahan ran two sub-4-minute miles, just the second Tiger to run a mile in under four minutes and just the third all-time in the Ivy League.

Yesterday, Callahan's teammate and captain Donn Cabral finished eighth in the 5,000-meter run.

They become the program's third pair to finish in the top 10 in their respective events at the NCAA indoor championship in the same season. They join Alex Pessala (weight) & Justin Frick (high jump) from 2009, Torra Harris (1st) and Josh McCaughey (9th) from 2002.
