Charles Silmon of TCU won three titles, earned the Big 12 men’s high point scorer award and moved into the NCAA lead in the 200-meter dash on Sunday at the Big 12 Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Waco.

Silmon, a senior from Waco, helped TCU finish sixth in the men’s division with 75 points. The women were ninth with 39 points.

After helping TCU win the 4x100 relay and taking the 100 dash, Silmon ran a dazzling 20.33 in the 200 meters. That’s the top time in the NCAA this year and the sixth fastest time in the world.

“Charles is a role model for our team and where we are trying to go,” TCU coach Darryl Anderson said. “He was the high-point scorer in the meet, he got a personal best in the 200 by three-tenths and by the end of the meet everything he touched turned to gold.”

Silmon and teammate Raymond Bozmans were first and second, respectively, in the 100 with times of 10.18 and 10.45.

It was Silmon’s fourth consecutive league title in the event after having won the previous three in the Mountain West Conference.

TCU won the men’s 4x100-meter relay with a time of 39.61. It’s the eighth consecutive time for the Frogs to win that event in a conference championships.

Cameron Parker won TCU’s first title by taking the triple jump with a 53-23/4. It was his third straight league title.
