Chris Solinsky may not have won his third consecutive national title in the 3,000 meters but his second-place finish is what propelled the Wisconsin track and field team to the 2007 NCAA Indoor Championship. The Badgers scored 40 points to win its first NCAA title in track and field and the first ever for a Big Ten Conference school.
“It proves if you coach long enough, anyone can win,” said UW coach Ed Nuttycombe with a smile. “We’ve been in the top 10 and top four but this is the first time we’ve won it all. This year we were able to get enough people in the same place at the same time to get it done.
“I think that the key was to try to optimize as many of the opportunities that we had. There’s so few for every team and the team that maximizes the best (wins) and today it was us.”
