Kingsway graduate Kylie Anicic runs NCAA D-2 provisional qualifier at 3,000 meters for Edinboro!!!

In her first track 3,000 since 2019, Edinboro junior and Kingsway graduate Kylie Anicic ran 9:56.81 to win the event at the Youngstown State University Indoor Invitational Friday in Ohio.

Anicic, in her first season of eligibility for NCAA Division 2 powerhouse Edinboro, recorded a provisional NCAA qualifier at 3,000 meters. Her time is No. 22 in the country in Division 2. The NCAA provisional qualifying standard is 9:58.36.

Anicic’s time is No. 9 on the all-time Edinboro performance list.

It was Anicic’s first 3,000 since Dec. 6, 2019, when she was attending Towson (Md.) University and ran 10:18.72 in a meet at Bucknell’s Gerhard Fieldhouse in Lewisburg, Pa. That was her previous PR.

Anicic ran 2:17.59, 5:07.11 and 11:09.09 at Kingsway but after graduation the Mickleton native enrolled at Temple to play soccer.

But after playing in only two games, she transferred to Towson, where she ran 4:36.42 for 1,500 meters and qualified for the USATF Under-20 Championships in Miramar, Fla.

Anicic enrolled at Edinboro in the fall but was ineligible for cross country season as a double transfer. But she’s eligible now and picking up where she left off two years ago.
