Lauren Penney only 3 weeks removed from indoor nationals, and a second-team All-America honor, Penney returned to the oval to compete in the 5k race. Her 15:56.8 clocking was a clinic as she put a significant gap on the field with about a mile to go and never looked back. This time lowers her previous school record in the event, a 16:09 clocking from two years ago. Her mark will surely get her to the NCAA Championships and puts her close the National Championship standards.
Martin Hehir ran a very nice personal best in 13:53.65, this mark puts him within striking distance of the school record of 13:46.46 from way back in 1982.
Also, as if there wasn't reason enough to ignore SU Athletics coverage, Ryan Urie will never be tripling (running three events) in a meet that isn't Big East. The direct quote: "Competing for the Orange in the men's 1500m will be...Urie will have a busy weekend, competing in the 3000m steeplechase and the 5000m race as well." Case and point, no one that writes that garbage understands the sport at all!
