RV grad Erika Kemp of N.C. State destroys her 1,500 PR at Raleigh Relays!!!!!

Rancocas Valley graduate Erika Kemp, now a senior at North Carolina State, ran a lifetime-best 4:17.93 for 1,500 meters this past weekend at the Raleigh Relays on the North Carolina State campus.

Kemp placed fifth behind two other Division 1 runners, a post-collegiate and record-setting Division 3 star Emily Richards of Ohio Northern.

Kemp’s time is seventh-fastest in NCAA Division 1 this year and No. 12 among all U.S. Women, according to the IAAF database.

Kemp’s previous PR at 1,500 meters was a 4:18.38 last April at the Charlotte Invitational. Her primary event is the 5,000, in which she has a PR of 15:41.23 from last April and which she’s raced at NCAAs three times.

At R.V., Kemp was the state Group 4 champ at 3,200 meters indoors and outdoors in 2013 and ran as fast as 10:40.95.
