Lane headed to D2 Nationals in 1,500 for Michigan Tech
The Michigan Tech University junior runner tried to hit an NCAA D2 provisional mark in the 800 and started with a bang before fading at the end.
No matter, Lane owns a top-10 national qualifying time in the 1,500 and is a threat to challenge for the title.
He posted a PR of 3:46.64 two weeks ago at the 49 th Hillsdale College Relays. Ten days earlier he beat a 90-man field in winning the Al Owens Open in 3:48.89.
Lane, of Service High fame, has collected 20 career top-10 finishes on the track, including three in the 1,500.
