LSU’s Nathaneel Mitchell-Blake in 20.29 and Alabama’s Jereem Richards took third place in 20.55 seconds.
This was the final event of the day, and the season for the Ducks. They finished the championships with 19.5 points. Their final standing will be determined after the 5K, 4x400 and field events wrap up, but after the 200, they crept into the top 10 in seventh place overall.
