TURLOCK, Calif. - Brent Vogel of Central Missouri closed it out in style.

Vogel (Helias High School) won the 1,500-meter run Friday afternoon to clinch the men's decathlon title at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Cal State Stanislaus.

Vogel finished with 7,462 points in the 10-event decathlon, nearly 300 more than runner-up Brad Gamble of Chadron State.
