Seawolf trio breaks school records
A local of Kapcheno, Kenya, Keino furnished a school record in the 5,000 meters at the Mt. SAC Relays with a time of 16 minutes, 20.87 seconds in the Olympic Development heat. Keino held the previous record at 16:24.67. The new time is just .87 of a second slower than the NCAA automatic time required for the championships.
O’Guinn, from Soldotna, broke the school record in the 800 meters with a new time of 2:10.60, besting the previous record of 2:10.69 set by current teammate Susan Bick in 2011. The time also improved her NCAA provisional standings.
Improving her own 200-meter UAA record was Morgan, who crossed the line at 24.34. A local of Salt Spring Island, B.C., Morgan’s previous best was 24.61 set last May. The time qualifies Morgan provisionally for the NCAA Championship on May 23-25.
Also posting a new NCAA provisional time in the 800 meters was Bick with a season-best time of 2:11.87.
The trip joins junior Susan Tanui, who broke the Seawolf record in the 10,000 meters on Thursday.
The Seawolves return to action tomorrow with the Beach Invitational in Norwalk, Calif.
