Hall Sets School Record Again in 5,000 Meters

Stanford, Calif.-----Tiffany Hall, a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference cross country runner in 2006, set her second school record in three weeks becoming the first San Jose State University runner to run a 5,000 meter race under 17 minutes.

The senior from Vacaville, Calif., who completed her senior season in cross country last year, was timed in 16:58.53 in a heat at the Stanford Invitational track and field meet. Hall finished fifth in the 27-woman field and easily beat two Western Athletic Conference competitors to the tape.

Her previous record of 17:20.64 came on March 11, 2007 at the Aggie Track & Field Open.

Laura Glynn of the University of Michigan won the heat in which Hall set the new mark with a time of 16:50.92. Meghan Leonard of Washington State was second at 16:57.40, just over a second better than Hall.
