WWU's Porter wins women's 10K at NCAA Division II National Championships
The Bellingham Herald
Western Washington University distance runner Sarah Porter had the greatest accomplishment of her illustrious career, winning the women's 10,000 meters in opening-day action Thursday, May 26, at the NCAA Division II National Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Turlock, Calif. Porter's time of 33:17.39 broke her own school record as well as bettering meet and stadium standards. The old meet record was 33:24.24 set by Robyn Root from Cal Poly SLO in 1985. Porter's clocking, which was just over 12 seconds off the all-time NCAA II standard of 33:05.80 set by Seattle Pacific's Bente Moe in 1987, qualified her automatically for the USA Championships later this summer.
