    KOLL SHATTERS COLLEGIATE 10K RECORD

    PALO ALTO, Calif. – She did it again. Iowa State distance runner Lisa Koll shattered the collegiate record in the 10,000-meter run Friday night, winning the event at the Stanford Invitational in 31:18.07. She now ranks as the sixth-fastest American ever in the event.

    “The most amazing thing about the record is that she ran it in a race where there was no one pushing her,” Iowa State head coach Corey Ihmels said. “She is the fastest collegiate runner in history and now one of the fastest American runners ever at this distance.

    At the same meet on the same track two years ago, Koll set the American Collegiate record with a 32:11.13 effort. She eclipsed that time Friday, breaking the previous collegiate record of 31:25.45 by Sally Kipyego of Texas Tech in 2008.

    What's even more amazing about Koll is that she's currently in Vet school. My fiance' is in vet school and I never see her. All they do is study.
