Omole shattered his own conference and school records in the 60-meter dash at the Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Ind., on Saturday. The senior won the dash with an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 6.55, marking the fastest collegiate time in the nation and the third-fastest time in the world this indoor season. Omole set the previous record of 6.62 in 2005 and then tied it in 2006 and again last weekend. This marks Omole's second consecutive award and his fourth career indoor honor.
