Sam Ellison ran a new PR tonight in the finals of the 800 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. His time of 1:47.62 landed him in 8th place, earning All-American status in only his sophomore year. Ellison improved his 800 meter PR by almost 4 seconds during his sophomore season. "Running in the finals today was a great experience for Sam," Villanova head coach Marcus O'Sullivan said. "He finished this season very well and it sets him up for big things in the future."
