FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas Razorback senior Dorian Ulrey won his first NCAA individual title and Arkansas’ second individual title of the event on the final day of competition at the NCAA Indoor Championships, at the Randal Tyson Track Center on Saturday.
Ulrey is a graduate of Riverdale High School.
“I’m really proud of the efforts I saw from our guys this weekend,” Arkansas head coach Chris Bucknam said. “Dorian picked himself up after the DMR (distance medley relay) and really competed well. I’m happy to see him get an NCAA title.”
After anchoring the distance medley relay to a runner-up finish Friday, Ulrey picked up his first NCAA individual title in Arkansas’ final event of the championship. He took the tape in the 3,000 meters in a time of 8:10.52. He is Arkansas’ first NCAA Champion in the 3,000 meters since Alistair Cragg in 2004. Ulrey earned the seventh All-America honor of his career and his sixth on the track.
“This feels incredible,” Ulrey said. “I went from the lowest low last night to the highest high tonight. This is amazing – indescribable really.”
