Lalang holds on, repeats as 5K champ

  Arizona's Lawi Lalang is the first repeat winner in the 5K since Chris Solinsky in 2006-07.

EUGENE, Ore. -- Arizona senior Lawi Lalang out-kicked Oregon freshman Edward Cheserek to win the 5,000 meters Friday night at the NCAA championships.

Lalang finished in a meet-record 13 minutes, 18.36 seconds for his eighth NCAA title. Cheserek took the lead on the final lap but defending champion Lalang pulled back in front on the final 100 meters for the dramatic finish.

Cheserek, who won the 10,000 meters Wednesday night, finished in 13.18.71.

Lalang, who also will run the 1,500 on Saturday, is the first to win back-to-back titles in the 5K since Wisconsin's Chris Solinsky in 2006-07

Baylor freshman Trayvon Bromell set a world junior record in the 100 meters in 9.97 seconds for the third day of the event at Oregon's historic Hayward Field.
