SEATTLE, Washington – Tyler Shipley's remarkable senior year continues as he set a new Puget Sound record in the 5,000-meter run during the University of Washington Invitational on Friday.
Shipley crossed the finish line in 14:28.19, besting the previous school record by more than 14 seconds. Francis Reynolds held the previous record with a time of 14:42.27, which he achieved in 2009.
Shipley, a Forest Grove, Oregon native, finished fifth overall, and placed head several top runners from NCAA Division-I schools such as Gonzaga, Washington State, Seattle, and Boise State.
During the 2015 cross country season, Shipley was named both the Northwest Conference Runner of the Year and the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association West Region Male Athlete of the Year.
