The team of Ali Khalafalla 19.37, Blake Pieroni 18.96, Sam Lorentz 18.96 and Joshua 19.24 set a new school mark of 1:16.53. That bettered the previous standard of 1:16.72 set at the 2017 BIG TEN Championships and had them 6th overall. That same quartet would tie for 7th in the Championship final in a time 1:16.78.Romany’s anchor leg split in the final was 19.41. That 7th place finish for the Hoosiers is their best performance in the event in more than 5 years.
