Moorestown’s Kate Inglis, a sophomore at Catholic University in Washington, shattered the school record at 3,000 meters Saturday at the Landmark Conference Championships at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pa.
Inglis placed 2nd in 10:08.96, breaking the school record by nearly 17 seconds. The previous mark was 10:25.84 set by Kiera Lyons at the 2019 NYU Invitational at the Armory.
Scranton senior Jessica Hoffman won the race in 10:03.45, breaking her own meet record of 10:20.69 that she set last year as well as the Landmark Conference overall record of 10:11.76 that she set last month.
Inglis ran lower than both of Hoffman’s previous records in what is now the 2nd-fastest 3,000 ever recorded by a Landmark Conference runner.
Inglis’s previous PR was a 10:16.36 from a meet earlier this month at Boston University. Before this month, she had never broken 10:30 for 3,000 meters.
Hoffman, from Watchung Hills High in Somerset County, has won eight consecutive Landmark Conference championship races, including cross country, indoors and outdoors, and was an All-America in cross country this past fall.
Inglis’s time is the equivalent of a 10:53.84 for 3,200 meters. Her high school PR was 11:50.38 from the 2018 Burlington County Open at Rancocas Valley. Inglis didn’t run indoor track at Moorestown.
