Kylie Anicic, racing off her XC peak, shattered the Edinboro school record in the 5,000 Friday at the Grand Valley State Universitry Holiday Open at State-Laker Fieldhouse in Allendale, Mich.

Anicic, a Kingsway graduate, ran 16:26.23, finishing 12 meters behind Western Michigan’s Makayla Perez, who ran 16:23.94. Perez, a Michigan transfer, has run as fast as 16:01.57 outdoors.

Anicic’s time is No. 1 in NCAA Division 2 so far this indoor season and a provisional qualifier for the NCAA Division 2 Championships in Virginia Beach in March.

Just seven days earlier, Anicic earned All-America honors with a 31st-place finish in the NCAA Division 2 cross country championships at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Wash., where she ran 21:14 for 6,000 meters.

Anicic’s previous 5,000 best was 16:39.84 when she won the Mountaineer Twilight in Morgantown, W. Va. Her indoor 5,000 PR was 16:47.87 at a home meet in Edinboro’s Zafirovski Rec Center in February.

Anicic broke the school record of 16:44.22 set by Rachael Lanzel when she won the 2009 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Championships at East Stroudsburg.
