WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Duke track & field program concluded its final meet of the season prior to the conference championships Saturday afternoon at both the JDL DMR Invitational and at the Virginia Tech Challenge. As a team, the Blue Devils posted one school record, another all-time top five performance, and 16 top ten meet finishes.

Esteban Suarez and Cole Rowan headlined the pole vault squad with personal-best heights. Suarez finished sixth with a clearance of 5.05m while Rowan’s ninth-place finish saw him clear 4.75m.

Duke’s distance squad saw solid performances in Winston-Salem as Nikhil Pulimood and Lindsay Billings finished in the top-three of their respective 3000m race. Pulimood clocked in a second-place time of 8:28.11 and with the NCAA flat track conversion, his time was 8:22.61. Billings raced to a third-place finish of 9:55.80 and with the conversion, her time is 9:51.15.

Nick Cox placed third overall in the men’s 800m.  His 1:54.84 raw time equals a 1:53.30 NCAA flat track conversion, his fastest of the indoor season.

The Blue Devils will return to competition for the ACC Indoor Championships Feb. 21-23 in Blacksburg, Va.
