Another race, another monster PR for Buena High School graduate Kristin Siegle, who’s having a terrific senior year for Rider.
Siegle trimmed another 3 1/2 seconds off her week-old 1,500 PR Saturday with a remarkable performance at the Philadelphia Metropolitan Collegiate Invitational at Franklin Field.
Siegle ran 4:25.33, shattering https://s3.amazonaws.com/sidearm.sites/rider.sidearmsports.com/documents/2019/8/14/All_Time_Top_10_Outdoor_Women.pdf
, which she set on Sunday in a meet at Monmouth. Seven days ago, her 1,500 PR was 4:39.94 from the 2019 Colonial Relays in Williamsburg, Va.
She’s now reduced that by an incredible 14 1/2 seconds in the span of just two races.
Her time is the equivalent to a 4:44.88 for 1,600 meters or 4:46.56 for a full mile.
Temple senior Grace Moore won the race in 4:19.56 and Delaware grad student Holly Manning, a New Zealand native and Stony Brook transfer, was second in 4:23.54. Both also PR’d.
Siegle’s time is No. 2 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, behind only Iona junior Gemma Nuttall, who ran 4:23.68 earlier this month in Providence.
Siegle, a native of Estell Manor, ran 2:20.03 for 800 meters and 5:15.98 for 1,600 meters in high school. So she’s now lowered her mile equivalent time about half a minute since arriving in Lawrenceville.
