This Day in Villanova T&F History

On June 19, 1969, Villanova's Erv Hall won the NCAA title and set a new US National Record in the 110 meter high hurdles with a performance of 13.2 in the NCAA finals held at University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee. Hall had previously won a silver medal at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics in 13.4, trailing only Willie Davenport (see above photo, with Hall in second place in the Olympic final).
