Holloway, who became just the second man in NCAA DI history to win three consecutive titles in the event, broke a 40-year-old collegiate record formerly held by Renaldo Nehemiah and moved up to No. 9 on the all-time U.S. chart when he crossed the finish line in 12.98.
Roberts matched Nehemiah’s former standard of 13.00 in a runner-up effort.
Holloway and Roberts rewrote the collegiate record book in 2019. All told, they combined for eight of the top-10 marks in collegiate history: No. 1, t-No. 2, No. 4, t-No. 5 (x2), No. 7, No. 8 and No. 9.
