COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Isaiah Harris of Lewiston finished second in the 800 meters, and Kate Hall of Casco helped Georgia win its first NCAA women’s indoor track championship with a sixth-place finish in the 60-meter dash Saturday at Texas A&M University.

Harris, a Penn State junior, finished with a personal-best time of 1 minute, 46.08 seconds, trailing only Michael Saruni (1:45.15) of Texas-El Paso as he matched his runner-up finish at last year’s outdoor championships. It’s the fourth time Harris has earned All-America honors.

Hall, a junior, scored in a second event following her victory Friday night in the long jump. She was clocked in 7.24 seconds in the 60 final, which was won by LSU’s Aleia Hobbs at 7.07.

Egan also finished eighth in the pentathlon on Friday.

Bowman, a senior at Tufts, added a fourth-place finish in the 3,000 (9:39.90) to her victory Friday in the 5,000. Katherine Cook of Bates was close behind in seventh place (9:44.32).
