Rob Mullett Earns All-America Honors

Rob Mullett Interview

FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. -- Butler senior Rob Mullett became just the second indoor track and field All-American in Butler history with a top eight finish in the men’s mile at the 2010 NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championship on Saturday, March 13.  It was just the second time in school history that Butler scored points in the indoor national meet.

Mullett, who placed fourth in the prelims of the men’s mile, wound up seventh in the final in 4:04.63.  The race was won by Lee Emanuel of New Mexico in 3:59.26.

Mullett, Butler’s lone participant in the national meet, was competing in the fastest mile field ever assembled for an NCAA Indoor Championship.  Earlier this season, he became the first athlete in Butler history to run a sub-four minute mile with a 3:59.37 effort at the Husky Classic, which broke the school-record of All-American Scott Overall.
