Track & field wrap up Big Ten Championships

Penn State had three individual champions, as the Nittany Lions finished up the Big Ten Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Sunday.

The Penn State men’s team recorded a fifth-place overall finish, while the women’s team was 10th on the weekend.

Brian Leap tied his career best in the triple jump en route to a conference title. Leap snagged his first-ever outdoor championship with a jump of 53 feet, 4 1/2 inches.

Isaiah Harris came from behind to win the 800-meter title. He finished the race at 1:46.21.

And for Penn State’s third individual title, Brannon Kidder clinched a 1,500-meter win. Kidder’s time of 3:44.67 gave him his ninth career Big Ten championship.

Penn State will train before heading to Jacksonville, Fla., for the NCAA East First Round from May 26-28.
