Texas A&M's first ever indoor national team title in men's track and field came about in dramatic fashion as Mylik Kerley '19 anchored the Aggies 4x400 relay to a come-from-behind victory in the last event. The 10 points from that race pushed Texas A&M's team total to 46 points, just half a point ahead of Florida, who placed second in the relay.
The meet was held at A&M's Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium, making this the first time an Aggie athletic team won a national championship in a competition held in College Station.
"This was a fine championship because of the crowd, because of the volume in this building, it was a pretty amazing win," said head coach Pat Henry. "I think we have the best indoor facility in the country, it's great to win this one here. We're going to have a track environment here that is second to none.
