Miller posts yet another school record time in 5000m run
MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Junior Caitlyn Miller (Lee, N.H.) continued her dynamic season with another record-setting performance to lead the Plymouth State University women's indoor track & field team during day one of the NCAA Division III New England Regional Championship at Middlebury College on Friday.
Miller shaved more than eight seconds off her record-setting performance at the Little East Championship (LEC) meet last weekend. The Panthers' 4x200-meter relay team was also in action, placing 11th.
Plymouth State did not accrue any points during the first day, but the majority of Panthers compete during tomorrow's events. Williams College leads the team scoring with 48 points.
