Lausev’s time in her fourth place finish was the team’s second fastest time ever on the course behind current NCAA indoor 800 meter record holder and KMHS alumna, Jazmine Fray. Fellow junior Maya Richardson and freshman Ashley Minns ran to times that place them on the KMHS all-time top ten list. Seniors Julia Bryant and Anita Mikowski rounded out the scoring.
