PALO ALTO, Calif. - Southern Utah University's Mike Tate set a season-best time at the Payton Jordan Invitational on Sunday night in the men's 1,500-meters while teammate Ryan Barrus did not finish in his heat of the men's 10,000-meters. Barrus' race was the final competition of the meet with the event wrapping up just after midnight.

Tate improved on his season-best time by finishing sixth in his section 5 heat with a time of 3:46.98. The time was just five seconds off first-place, ran by UTEP's Cosmas Boit, and only .44 seconds from the second-best time in SUU school history (3:46.54), recorded by Mark Wright in 1999.

Barrus did not finish in the men's 10,000-meters, his first race at that distance this season.

Southern Utah alum, Cam Levins, ran in the professional 10,000-meter heat and finished second behind Nike teammate and Mexican Olympian Juan Luis Barrios (27:34.40) with a time of 27:36.00. Levins continues to hold SUU's record in the event with a time of 27:27.96 set in 2012.

Thunderbird athletes will look to record final Big Sky qualifying marks when members of the team compete at the Weber State twilight meet on Wednesday.
