Kyle Webb and his Purdue Menís Track & Field teammates earned its highest finish since 1972 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships hosted by the University of Oregon.
The menís 4x400-meter Relay team added three points to the team score to bring the team total to 14 and give them their eighth top-15 finish in program history.
Nicholas Parks led things off for the Menís 1,600-meter Relay team. He got the stick to Webb, who ran the second leg. The first two legs had a combined time of 1:33.78. Then it was Kendal Frederickís turn. He ran the Boilermakers fastest leg of the day with a time of 46.15 seconds. Shawndail McLaren brought it home, edging conference foe Ohio State at the line.
Then, a disqualification to Mississippi State bumped Purdue up another spot to sixth place, where they would finish.
