AZUSA, Calif. – Three North Dakota runners clocked personal-record times and a fourth moved up the Big Sky Conference rankings Friday at the Bryan Clay Invitational, hosted by Azusa Pacific University.

Senior Savana Weller moved into sixth in the Big Sky 800-meters rankings, recording a season-best time of 2 minutes, 12.80 seconds. That was good for a third-place finish in her section and a ninth-place standing among 69 total participants.

Sophomore Paige Slemmons won her heat in the 200-meters with a PR of 25.28 seconds. The Fargo, N.D., native was also runner-up in her heat in the 100-meters with a time of 12.41.

Freshman Megan Kienholz established a new PR of 2:15.06 on the 200-meters, winning her heat and placing 21st overall in the field of 69.

In the 5,000-meters, junior Erin Wysocki hit a new PR time of 18:01.24 and finished second in her heat and 17th among 49 total runners.

A trio of UND student-athletes also competed in the high jump. Juniors Rochelle Robb and Ashley Fedie each tied for ninth with a leap of 1.58 meters, while freshman Aubrey Hovland cleared 1.53 to tie for 20th.

The Bryan Clay Invitational was one of three meets in which UND competed today, with split squads also taking part in the Beach Invitational at Cerritos College and the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut.
