PITTSBURG, Kan. - It came down to the final event, but the Lincoln women's track & field team won the 2016 NCAA Division II Indoor Championship in record-breaking style on Saturday (March 12). In the process, the Blue Tigers won their fifth-ever NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championship, and their 12th national title overall.lumo witf16 national champs

Lincoln had also won the national title in 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2010. It's the 12th track & field championship all-time for Lincoln, which won the outdoor national title in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2014.

The Blue Tigers led the team standing, 50-35, with just two track events remaining. Hillsdale made a big comeback in the penultimate event, placed first, second and fourth in the 3,000m. That pulled Hillsdale ahead, 58-50, over Lincoln with only the 4x400m relay remaining.

With the Blue Tigers trailing by eight, Lincoln needed to come in second in the relay to tie Hillsdale or first to win. Willomena Williams led off the relay and passed the baton to Jhevere Hall. By the time Hall handed the baton to Kissi-Ann Brown for the third leg of the race, the Blue Tigers were in second behind runners from Johnson C. Smith. Brown, however, ran fast and hard to pull even with the leading runner entering the final handoff, and Venicha Baker out-ran Johnson C. Smith's runner to win the relay.

Lincoln ended up winning the 4x400m relay with a time of 3:38.87, the fastest ever in the history of the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships. The Blue Tigers broke the old record time of 3:39.24 which, fittingly enough, was set by Lincoln in 1997. As a result, the Blue Tigers finished with 60 team points, edging Hillsdale (58). Grand Valley State claimed third with 33 points.
