Timlin's Terrific ISU Career Comes to a Close

EUGENE, Ore. - Indiana State senior David Timlin ran his final race for the Sycamores in the NCAA Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

The All-American participated in the Men's 1500 Meter and finished 10th, earning a third straight Second-Team All-America honor.

He's the first ever ISU national qualifier in the 1500 event.

His career also included six MVC titles, including three alone in 2016.

Prior to the race, Timlin pointed to the "JM" stitched on his uniform to honor the late coach John McNichols.

"I had it on my mind to do my best to represent myself, my team and Coach McNichols to show exactly what he taught me all those years. Hard work and discipline, what it ultimately produced," Timlin said after the race.

"Biggest thing I said was, 'thank you.' Thanks for putting in the efforts and being so hard on himself because that's why he's here. He has huge goals for himself. He wants to get better. That's a great thing for our team. Hopefully, people look up to him in that way," ISU Track and Field Director Angela Martin said.
