Kylie Anicic, a Kingsway graduate and one-time Temple soccer player, shattered Edinboro University’s 3,000-meter school record Saturday at a meet in Ohio.
Anicic placed third at the Jud Logan “Light Giver” Open at Ashland College’s Niss Athletic Center with a time of 9:43.39, finishing behind only Bre Bakan, competing unattached, who ran 9:40.76, and Miami of Ohio’s Charlotte Roemer, who ran 9:42.28.
Anicic, a junior at the Northwestern Pennsylvania school along Lake Erie, broke the school record of 9:47.60 set in 1990 by NCAA runner-up Donna Thibert of Windsor, Ontario.
Her time is No. 15 in NCAA Division 2. Her previous PR was a 9:56.81 at a meet in Youngstown last month, which was already an NCAA qualifier.
Logan was a four-time Olympian in the hammer throw who coached Ashland’s track team for years. He died in January from complications of COVID.
