set a school record
PULLMAN – Lewis-Clark State College runners
established a school record and narrowly
missed another at the Washington State
University Invitational track and field meet
With a handful of cross country runners
representing the LCSC team, the results were
encouraging as the team approaches the end
of the year, LCSC coach Mike Collins says.
Saturday’s highlights included junior Aaron
Galbraith's fourth place finish in the 3,000
meters in a school record time of 8:54.59.
Not far behind was sophomore Adrian Ramirez,
who almost broke the old record himself
finishing in 9:09.37.
In addition, sophomore Katja Palm-Loevslett
just missed the school record in the women’s
3,000 meters by 0.70 seconds, finishing in
10:47.87. She was followed closely by Jenny
Jensen (11:04), Emily Perkins (11:13), and
Lindsay Szybura (11:15).
Also competing in the 1,500 was Eric Tuwei
(4:14) and Kyli Astle (5:00).
Within only a couple of competitions left
this year there are limited opportunities
for Warrior runners to qualify for
nationals. Only a couple of Warriors will
be competing next week as the rest of the
team will be doing a training run while
supporting the Seaport River Run on
The next meet where the full team will
compete will be in two weeks in Bozeman,
Mont., where the team hopes to take
advantage of altitude time adjustments that
will come from running at elevation on the
Montana State campus.
