Dolak placed third in the 800 meter run with a time of 1:58.85.
“I tried to hang back behind the pack so they could break some of the wind for me, and I made a break at the last 150,” said Dolak, a junior. “I’ve still got one more year. I got a little cut off at one point, but I kept going. I didn’t want to hold back.”
