TCU’s Watts runs to fastest 200 indoor in world this season

TCU’s Sam Watts, a junior from London, won the 200 meters in 20.69 seconds, the world’s fastest time this season, Saturday at the New Mexico Team Invitational in Albuquerque.

It’s the second-fastest indoor time in school history.

Ronnie Baker won the 60 meters in 6.56 seconds, the second-fastest time in school history and the third-fastest in the NCAA this season.

Cameron Echols-Luper finished second in the men’s long jump with a mark of 25 feet, the third-best indoor mark in program history.

Blomberg shines

Emil Blomberg ran the indoor mile in 4:07.33, the second-fastest time in UT Arlington history, and finished second at the adidas Classic in Lincoln, Neb.

Blomberg’s time was just .31 off the school record set nearly 30 years ago.

It’s also the best time in the Sun Belt Conference this season.

Quentin Butler won two events, winning the 200 meters in 21.39 (third best in the Sun Belt) after taking the long jump with a mark of 23 feet, 9 inches.

Ambria Tisdell set a school record in the weight throw with a mark of 54-8 1/4.
