The Wisconsin men's track team looked sharp at the SeaRay Relays hosted by the University of Tennessee, winning three events Friday.


Freshman sprinter Demi Omole won the 100-meter dash with a personal best 10.38 seconds, which is also the seventh-fastest time in school history. He also improved on his NCAA regional qualifying time of 10.49, which he set March 21.


Omole also participated on Wisconsin's 800 relay team with junior Jvontai Hanserd, redshirt freshman Chad Melotte and senior Gustin Smith, which took second with a time of 1:25.40. 


The Badger distance runners also fared well. Sophomore Simon Bairu, junior Tim Keller, freshman Chris Solinsky and junior Matt Tegenkamp won the 6,000 relay, finishing in 15:29.90, the fifth-fastest time in UW history.


Redshirt freshman Codie See won the 3,000 steeplechase's open section with a time of 9:16.66.


Wisconsin will participate in the final day of the SeaRay Relays Saturday.
