|Shalaya Kipp Clocks Season Best to Advance to Worlds|
July 20, 2013
Shalaya Kipp was good in June, but she needed to be better in July – and she was.
The University of Colorado senior placed third in last month’s 3,000-meter steeplechase at the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships, earning a spot on the U.S. roster for the IAAF World Championships in Athletics this summer.
But Kipp finished the race in 9:46.83, not the ‘A’ standard of 9:43.00 needed to automatically advance. In order to solidify her spot on the team she had to run under 9:43 before July 20.... more

While the other runners in the race sported standard-issue kits, Pappas smoked the field in a homemade singlet with polka-dot stripes, black, lace-trimmed shoulders and a picture her brother had drawn of a flying horse pinned on the front.... more
|Nicole Bush, Ashley Higginson punch ticket to Moscow, Shalaya Kipp will need to run the "A"|
June 25, 2013
Because Bush had achieved the IAAF World Championships “A” standard, and Higginson the “B,” Kipp is the only one of the group who needs to record a mark under 9:43.00, which would give her the second “A” and complete the team. Only two A’s and one B are allowed to travel to Moscow. If Kipp does not run an “A” time before July 20, then Cheever will take over the final qualifying spot, as she has already run under 9:43.00.

May 25, 2013
“Days like this are funny because you are sitting in your hotel room ready to go and then it’s an hour delay, then a two-hour delay and then a three-hour delay,” Coburn said. “It kind of messes up your schedule a little bit, but everyone has to deal with it, so it doesn’t make it a disadvantage to a specific athlete. I liked it because we got to run in perfect Austin weather.”... more

May 25, 2013
Running at the front from the gun, 2012 All-American Colleen Quigley ran away from the first heat field, winning in a personal-best time of 9:49.44, which is off the school record held by 2012 Olympian Barbara Parker (9:48.42).
"I wasn't training through this," said Quigley. "I was peaking for this so I was ready for a hard effort and a PR. It felt surprisingly easy. ... It's just kind of fun to see how fast I can run by myself and I know I can go faster if I had people to push me."... more
