Risper Kimaiyo wrapped up her collegiate career earning her seventh All-American honor at the 2013 NCAA Championships at Hayward Field.

“She (Kimaiyo) did a very good job,” said associate head coach Paul Ereng. “This was a tough field and it was the first time she ran the 10K in a highly competitive field. She has done a lot for our women’s program since she was a freshman and made it to the regional meet. I couldn’t have asked for a better athlete.”

The senior competed in the 10,000m for the first time on the national stage and posted an eight-place finish in the competitive race. The distance runner clocked in a time of 34:03.35, which secured Kimaiyo her second outdoor All-American honor.

Sophomore Anthony Rotich also took the track in the first day of the NCAA Championship. The distance runner automatically qualified to the 3,000m steeplechase on Friday with a first-place finish in the semifinals. Rotich crossed the finish line with a personal best of 8:32.50, which also checks in as the seventh-fastest time in program history.

Rotich will take the track in the 3,000m steeplechase finals on Friday at 5:40 p.m. (PCT). Janice Jackson will be the first Miner to compete tomorrow at 5:05 p.m. in the 100m hurdles semifinals, followed by the men’s 4x400m relay semifinals at 6:40 p.m.
