Kaderabek Runs Eighth-Fastest 5,000-Meter Time
Jan. 27, 2017
SEATTLE -- Gonzaga's Max Kaderabek ran the eighth-fastest 5,000-meter time in program history on the first day of the UW Invitational Friday.
Kaderabek ran a 14:42.07 inside the Dempsey Center, placing 12th in his heat and 14th overall. The senior bested his previous personal record of 15:01.94 set at the same meet last season.
"Max ran near perfect," Director of GU Track Pat Tyson said. "He stuck his nose in with very good runners! There's more to come for the kid from San Diego. He just dug deep!"
"Dillon did a lot of the work," Tyson said. "He had a two-second PR! Daniel Thompson came in literally off the bench as a substitute for his teammate Phillip Fishburn and went from a personal best 8:55 last week to 8:34.60. That's a 21-second PR for the freshman."
"Our women aren't doing badly for all the icy running they have had to do," Gonzaga women's head coach Patty Ley said.
The Bulldog men have a trio of runners in the men's mile, which is the first event for GU Saturday at 12 p.m. Live video and results from the second day of the UW Invitational will be available on GoZags.com.
