AMES, Iowa -
Baylor sophomore Will Fitts set a new school record by clocking a 1:48.82 in the 800 meters to finish ninth Saturday at the last chance meet hosted by Iowa State at Lied Track.
Fitts, who was the only Bear competing at a last chance meet, broke the 15-year old mark of 1:49.11 held by Terril Davis. Fitts also posted another NCAA provisional qualifying mark, but will have to wait until Monday when the selections are made for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships Friday and Saturday at the Randal Tyson Track Complex in Fayetteville, Ark.
