DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Florida State's Ngonidzashe (En-go-DEE-shah) Makusha broke the national collegiate record in the 100 meters Friday in the NCAA Outdoor championships, winning in 9.89 seconds.
Makusha broke the mark of 9.90 set by Ato Boldon of UCLA in 1996. Teammate Maurice Mitchell was third as the Seminoles picked up 16 quick points for the team title chase.
It was the second dominant performance of the meet for Makusha, who won the long jump in 27 feet, 634 inches -- the best mark at the NCAA meet in 18 years.
Oklahoma's Candyce McGrone upset LSU's Kimberlyn Duncan to win the women's 100 title in 11.08. Washington State's Jeshua Anderson won the men's 400 hurdles for the third time in four years.
