Two Loggers set school records in 3,000-m run on the same day

SEATTLE, WashingtonTyler Shipley set a new Puget Sound record for the 3,000-meter race during the Washington Indoor Preview Meet on Saturday, but the new standard didn't last long.

Shipley, running with the second section, crossed the finish line with a time of 8:31.40 – which broke Dan McLean's 2004 record of 8:31.51. However, Geremia Lizier-Zmudzinski set a rapid pace with the third section and blew out the previous Logger records with a time of 8:20.11.

Lizier-Zmudzinski's time in the 3,000-meter run is the best in NCAA Division-III this season, and Shipley's mark is ranked sixth.

The Loggers will compete in the Washington State Invitational starting on Friday, Jan. 22.
