NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma track & field senior Riley Masters clocked a personal-best 3:57.74 mile last weekend in the Boston University Terrier Classic, held at the Boston university-Track & Tennis Center.
Masters competed unattached since he has exhausted his eligibility in indoor track and field at Oklahoma. His mile performance at the Terrier Classic would stand as OU’s second-best time in program history if he had represented OU as a collegiate runner at the classic.
The performance would also have given OU the top-two collegiate miles in the country for the 2013 season after fellow redshirt senior and teammate, Patrick Casey, broke the program record this past weekend at the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., with a nation-leading time of 3:56.28.
Galen Rupp, who won the race in 3:50.92, ran in an attempt to break the American indoor record (3:49.89) set by Bernard Lagat in 2005. Rupp, a prominent figure in the track and field world, is the 2012 London Olympic U.S. silver medalist in the 10,000-meter run.
