EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Stanford junior Kori Carter won 400-meter hurdles in a collegiate-record 53:21 seconds Friday in the NCAA outdoor track and field championships.
Carter broke the mark of 53.54 set by UCLA's Sheena Johnson at the NCAA outdoor championships in 2004. It was the fastest time in the world this season.
Carter bested rival Georganne Moline of Arizona, who finished second in 53.72 in sunny conditions at Oregon's Hayward Field.
Southern California senior Reggie Wyatt won the men's 400 hurdles in 48.58, breaking his own personal best.
Oregon junior English Gardner, who was hampered by a sore right ankle and failed to qualify in the 200 the day before, powered through the 100 to win in 10.96, the fastest college time this season.
