Hawkeye men capture Big Ten track crown

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa men's track team sprinted to their first Big Ten Conference title since 1967.

The Hawkeye's runner-up finish in the 4 x 400 meters secured the crown, the first since head coach Larry Wieczorek was a member of the team 44 years ago.

Iowa scored three individual championships on the day, starting with sophomore Justin Austin.  Austin clocked a track record time of 20.46 seconds in the 200 meters to take home the Big Ten crown for the second year in a row.

Matt Byers was golden in the javelin, repeating for top honors with a throw of 235 feet, 4 inches.  Junior Troy Doris rounded out the Iowa trio with a triple jump victory following a winning leap of 53 feet, 8 1/2 inches.
