O'Guinn, Flanagan, Foldager setting high marks in college

University of Alaska Anchorage junior Ivy O’Guinn raced to a school record on Friday at the annual Mt. SAC Relays and Bryan Clay Invitational in Walnut, Calif.

O’Guinn, a former Skyview High School track runner, broke the school record in the 800 meters with a new time of two minutes, 10.60 seconds, besting the previous record of 2:10.69 set by current teammate Susan Bick.

The time also improved her NCAA provisional standings.

Montana State junior Lierin Flanagan of Kenai ran the fastest 200 meters of her college career at the Bobcat Open.

The time was winded aided, however, as the race was held in blustery conditions.

She ran 26.34 seconds to finish third in the race. Her fastest outdoor time is 26.84, set in 2011.

Flanagan, of Kenai High fame, is also coming off a strong showing at the Mondo Challenge by earning a PR of 2:11.38 in the 800.

The junior star also has 10 wins since the 2013 calendar change in the indoor and outdoor seasons. Her victories have come in the 400, 800, distance medley relay and 1,600-meter relay.

Seward’s Denali Foldager of Cal State Stanislaus improved her NCAA Division II provisional qualifier time recently in the 3,000-meter steeplechase.

A two-time all-conference pick in the event, the senior ran a time of 11:04.28, which was nearly a full second faster than the time she posted last month.

Foldager, of Seward High fame, last qualified for the NCAA Championships in 2010.
