WALNUT, Calif. – While North Dakota split squads competed in three different meets today in the Golden State, it was senior distance runner Lindsay Anderson who shone the brightest.

Running at the 55th annual Mt. SAC Relays, Anderson broke a 20-year old school record in the 5K race tonight, clocking a time of 16 minutes, 35.91 seconds. It was also a Big Sky Conference automatic qualifying time for the Leeds, N.D., native, who eclipsed the previous record of 16:50.54 set by Steph Bruening at Southwest Missouri State in 1993.

Freshman Stephanie Clarke also competed at the Mt. SAC Relays. The native of Edmonton, Alberta, ran a time of 57.70 seconds in the 400-meters.
