WALNUT, CA. – History was made at the Mount San Antonio College Relays on Thursday night as Andy Reischling broke the school record in the 10,000-meter run and set the second-fastest time in the nation this season.
Competing against Division I, II, and professional athletes, Reischling took 15th in the 10000m Run Open A race at 29:51.75, breaking the Pomona-Pitzer record of 29:57 set by Crosby Freeman in 2006. Adin Becker also competed at the meet in the 10000m Open B race, clocking in at 30:53.55 for a 12th place finish. His time places him 10th all-time in the Sagehens record book.
"The 10k is a new event for Andy this year, and the school record was something that he had on his radar all year," said Head Coach Jordan Carpenter. "Going in to the season we had this race circled on the calendar as the race where we wanted to be ready to run fast. Andy went out and executed his race to perfection and finished as the fastest runner in PP history. Andy puts in so much work and is always ready to compete, I am so happy for him to be able to accomplish one of his season goals."
"Adin also ran a great race. He ran very tough and ran the late stages of the race without any competitors around him. Similar to Andy, the 10k is a new event for Adin this year as well and he has done a great job embracing the long distance of the race."
