DES MOINES, Iowa -- The BYU men's track team wrapped up the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships with an eighth-place finish and 27.50 total points.

"It was an outstanding meet for us," BYU coach Mark Robison. "That is probably one of our best performances at Nationals. It is tough to score points so I'm pretty happy with it."

Junior Miles Batty finished in seventh place in the 1,500 meters final in a time of 3:45.07. With the seventh-place finish, Batty earned first team All-America honors and picked up two points.

In addition to Batty, senior Leif Arrhenius (shot put, discus), Chris Little (pole vault) and Victor Weirich (pole vault) also earned All-America honors.
