BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Northern Arizona’s Abdihamid Nur set the meet record in the men’s 5000 meters at the NCAA indoor track and field championships.

The Virginia Tech senior broke the conference record last month with a vault of 15-1 1/2 to win her fourth consecutive ACC crown. Florida’s Jasmine Moore and Monae’ Nichols of Texas Tech each jumped 21-6 3/4, but Moore won the long jump with a second-best effort of 21-6 1/4. Nichols next-best mark was 21-5 1/2.
