Lewiston's Isaiah Harris finishes second in 800 at NCAA championships

...Harris is no stranger to championship meets. On top of this being his fourth NCAA Championship meet (indoor and outdoor), the sophomore already owns four Big Ten titles in the 800 and competed in the 2016 Olympic trials. He has also run the fastest indoor and outdoor 800 times in Penn State school history.

In just over two years, Harris has emerged as a up-and-comer in the world of track and field. His name is riddled throughout the Penn State record books, and he has his eyes set on the 2020 Olympics. He credits his hometown for all that he’s accomplished so far.

“The whole time I’ve been growing up — high school, middle school — I’ve had a lot of good influence around the city and people who have helped me,” Harris said after his semifinal race Wednesday. “So, just thanks to everybody back home.”

Lewiston's Isaiah Harris reaches 800-meter final at USATF national meet

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Lewiston native and Penn State sophomore Isaiah Harris continued his spectacular season Friday night by advancing to the final in the 800-meter run at the 2017 USATF Outdoor Championships at Sacramento State's Hornet Stadium.

Harris, who won his qualifying heat Thursday afternoon in the blistering heat, needed to place in the top four of his semifinal Friday to reach Sunday afternoon's final.

After taking the race out slowly, as he is wont to do, Harris closed from seventh position to third to earn the qualifying spot. His time of 1:45.77 was third best not only in his heat, but also across both semifinal races on Friday. The time is also just .65 seconds off of his personal best that he set while racing for Penn State at Charlottesville, Virginia, on April 21, and was the top time among collegiate runners at the event.

Lewiston's Isaiah Harris second in 800-meter final, secures spot at World Championships

...Sunday, after a blistering personal best of 1:44.53 in the 800-meter run at the USATF 2017 National Championships, Harris learned his feet are going to keep him running all the way to London and the World Championships.

Harris' time was good for second place Sunday behind Donavan Brazier (1:44.14), and a berth on Team USA at this summer's World Championships in London.

Harris' previous best in his signature event was 1:45.12 on April 22 at the Virginia Challenge, the second event on Penn State's outdoor schedule this past spring. Harris is a sophomore on the Nittany Lions' team he recently helped earn a Big 10 track and field title. He graduated from Lewiston High School in 2015.

Lewiston runner qualifies for world track and field championships

Two years ago, Isaiah Harris capped off a stellar high school track and field career at Lewiston High School by winning the 800- and 1,600-meter runs at the Class A outdoor state championship meet.

In August, the Lewiston native will compete on one of the biggest track stages of his life.

Harris, a sophomore at Penn State University whose 2016-2017 season has been one to remember, qualified for the world track and field championships in the 800 meters by finishing second at last weekend’s U.S. championships in Sacramento.

The world championships are scheduled for Aug. 5-13 in London.

Lewiston native Isaiah Harris advances to semifinals at track and field world championships

LONDON — Lewiston native Isaiah Harris took care of in his first race of the 2017 track and field world championships Saturday.

Harris, a 2015 Lewiston High School graduate who just completed his sophomore season at Penn State University, earned a spot in the 800-meter run semifinals by finishing in an automatic qualifying position, which goes to the top three finishers in each heat. Harris ran the race in 1 minute, 45.82 seconds, which was the second fastest in his heat.

Harris’ time was the eighth-fastest overall, and the second-fastest by an American — Donavan Brazier finished in 1:45.65.

The fastest time in the first round was run by Thijmen Kupers of the Netherlands (1:45.53).

Harris will compete in the semifinals Sunday at 4:35 p.m. Eastern time.

Lewiston's Isaiah Harris 4th in semifinal, falls short of 800 final at world championships

LONDON — Isaiah Harris fought for a spot in the final of the 800-meter run at the track & field world championships, but a fourth-place finish in the first semifinal heat wasn't enough to get there for the Lewiston native.

Harris clocked in at 1:46.66 for the two-lap race, putting him behind heat winner Adam Kszczot (1:46.24), of Russia, as well as Nijel Amos, of Botswana, and Ferguson Cheruiyot Rotich, of Kenya. Harris' heat turned out to be the slowest, with only Kszczot and Amos advancing to the final with their finishing spots.

The top two finishers in each of the three semifinal heats advanced to the final, as did the two fastest remaining runners. Thiaga Andre (1:45.83), of Brazil, and Marcin Lewandowski (1:45.93), of Poland, had the fastest times outside of the top two in the heats. Andre ran in the third heat, Lewandowski the second.
