William Harlow joined Colorado College teammate Will Richmond as a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference champion in one event on Saturday and came ever-so-close to standing on the victory podium in another.
Harlow, a sophomore transer from Hingham, Mass., outraced Trinity University's Vincent Omegba in the 110-meter hurdles, finishing first in 17.59 seconds compared to Omegba's runner-up effort of 17.73, to give the Tigers their second title in as many days at the league's annual meet in San Antonio, Texas. He later cleared 19 feet, 11 inches in the long jump, claiming second place to double up on his all-SCAC honors.
Richmond, meanwhile, followed up Friday's triumph in the 3,000-meter steeple chase with a second-place showing of 15:55.47 in the 5,000 meters on Saturday.
Also grabbing all-conference accolades for CC was junior Graham Frank, who claimed third in the 1,500 meters with a time of 4:13.80.
Just missing the cut, with fourth-place finishes, were junior Sam English and freshman Ryan Bing. English was right behind Frank in the 1,500 at 4:17.70, while Bing posted a 1:59.78 in the 800 meters.
English also scored points for Colorado College in the 5,000 meters, taking fifth with a 16:41.44. Sophomore Tucker Hampson matched that feat in the 800, chasing Bing across the line in 20 minutes flat.
Senior Sean Buck (4:23.36) and sophomore Whit Henderson (4:27.15) captured eighth behind Frank and English in the 1,500 meters, while sophomore Nick Dye (16:59.25) followed Richmond and English for an eighth-place finish in the 5,000.
