Excerpts From The Old Vicarage, Grantchester By Rupert Brooke


God! I will pack, and take a train

And get me to England once again!

Strong men have run for miles and miles

When one from Cherry Hinton smiles

Stands the Church clock at ten to three

And is there honey still for tea?

Three Historic Hayward Field Performances

Collegiate record - Donavan Brazier_1465623243707_2893213_ver1.0

Texas A & M Freshman Donavan Brazier set an American junior, World junior and NCAA record of 1:43.55, the second fastest time in the world, to win the NCAA 800 metres title. Jim Ryun’s NCAA record 1:44.3 had stood 50 years to the day!


Arkansas University’s Jarrion Lawson became only the second athlete ever to win three individual NCAA titles at the same championship, eqalling Jesse Owens 100 metres, 200 metres and long jump (1935, 1936).


Oregon’s Edward Cheserek did the 5000/10000 metres double again to equal the all-time record of 15 NCAA titles held by UTEP’s Suleiman Nyambui (1982), with one year left at university.
