Risper Kimiyo shined at the 55th Annual Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif.
The senior ran against the worlds top runners in the women’s 5,000m Invitational Elite race. The All-American clocked in a season-best time of 15:55.67 finishing 20th overall.
Kimaiyo’s time earned her the No. 8 spot in the national rankings and the No. 1 spot in Conference USA. This was the first time since 2011 that the distance runner competed in the 5,000m.
The Miners will be traveling to Des Moines, Iowa next week to participate at the highly competitive Drake Relays.
