Kurgat sets record for Division II athletes in 3,000 meter race

Seattle, WA UAA's Caroline Kurgat set an all time Division II record on the first day of the indoor track and field season with the fastest time ever run by a division II athlete in the 3,000 meter race.

Kurgat ran the 3,000 meter race in 9:07.05, breaking the previous best mark of 9:09.50 set by Cal Poly's Amy Harper back in 1983.

Kurgats time is the fastest time by any collegiate woman regardless of division by 11 seconds.
