Don't blink or you will miss Raheem Mostert.

Sandra Dukes-US PRESSWIRE

Once again, Raheem Mostert is really, really, ridiculously fast.

In the East Regionals tonight for the NCAA Track & Field Championships he ripped off a blazing 10.15 in the 100 meters to finish second and advance to next weekend's NCAA Championships at Eugene, Oregon. The time would have been a school record, but it was wind-aided. Only Florida State's Dentarius Locke beat him. Mostert was one of 12 runners to advance out of the 100 meters to Eugene.

Mostert may be running a pair of events once he gets to Oregon too. In the 200 meter preliminaries he finished fifth overall with a time of 20.65 to reach tomorrow night's final. The top 12 there will also go on to Eugene.

Mostert is not the only Purdue athlete on his way to Eugene. BreAnna Smith is headed there with a 2:05.61 time in the 800 meters to advance. She actually won her final heat, so she'll be in excellent position next week.
