Georgia's Kristie Krueger Shatters School's 5000 Record At Mt. SAC Relays
Sophomore Brandon Lord

April 21, 2012

WALNUT, Calif. --- Georgia senior Kristie Krueger highlighted the second day of the Mt. SAC Relays by shattering the school’s 5000-meter run record late Friday.

Krueger, whose previous best of 16:30.09 was set at the 2010 Southeastern Conference Championships, sped to the top collegiate finish (second overall) after clocking a 16:00.66.  This tops the previous school record of 16:13.96 set by Erin Jones at the 1997 NCAA Championships.

This is the second-fastest time in the SEC this year and No. 16 on the national performance list.

On the men’s side, sophomore Brandon Lord was eighth in the 5000 after he completed his laps in a career-best 14:03.33.  This moved him from No. 5 to No. 4 on the school’s all-time top-10 list as he was running his second 5000 of the season.

Sophomore Megan Malasarte clocked her second 2:06 in a row to finish 17th in the 800-meter run.  She registered a 2:06.88 to finish in front of 74 other competitors.

Junior Daniel Grass finished 31st in the 800 after recording a personal-best time of 1:50.73.  His senior teammate Aaron Evans ran in his second 800 of the year and took 63rd (1:52.78).
