Eastern Kentucky University’s Jamaine Coleman is the national runner-up in the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.

The senior finished second in the finals of the event at the NCAA Track & Field Championships on Friday evening at Historic Hayward Field, clocking a personal-best time of 8:33.5.

Minnesota’s Obsa Ali edged Coleman for the national title with a time of 8:32.2.

Coleman’s time of 8:33.5 just missed Ole Hesselbjerg’s school record-time of 8:33.2

His silver-medal finish is tied for the best national finish ever by an EKU student-athlete.

Ken Glover (1981 men’s outdoor high jump), Jackie Humphrey (1987 women’s outdoor 100-meter hurdles) and Jacob Korir (2008 men’s indoor 5,000 meters) also won NCAA silver medals for the Colonels.

Coleman will earn first team All-America honors for his performance on Friday.
