SOUTH BEND, Ind.  -- Junior Alex Deir had a successful Saturday at the Alex Wilson Invitational and, as a result, he is one of the top ranked runners in the Big 12, heading into conference championship week.

Deir ran a 4:00.79 in the mile, finishing sixth in the process. The time, six seconds better than his previous season best, ranks second in the Big 12 and moves him into seventh on the all-time OU career list.

OU's distance medley relay also competed Saturday, posting a time of 9:32.92 to finish ninth. More important, the time, 11 seconds better than OU's previous best, ranks second in the Big 12.
