Highland graduate Nia Holden, a sophomore at American University, ran an outdoor 800 PR Saturday at the Bucknell Team Challenge in Lewisburg, Pa.
Holden ran 2:15.32 lowered her outdoor PR from 2:15.60, which she ran when she placed 5th at last year’s Patriot League Championships in West Point, N.Y.
Holden’s time is No. 8 in American history and just 1-100th of a second out of seventh place.
This year’s Patriot League Championships are scheduled for May 5-6 at Ingram Field at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.
