ULM, GERMANY - Rising senior Friederike Feil once again set a school record in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, this time at the German National Track and Field Championships over the weekend.
Feil's time of 10.20.46 was good for fifth place and was an improvement of more than four and a half seconds over the previous record, which she set at the NCAA East Regional in May, which itself lowered the record she had previously set at the Sun Belt Outdoor Championships.
"I'm in the best shape of my life and am looking forward to having a great cross country season in the fall," said Feil after the race.
