King, Knight Top National Steeplechase



Colby runners finished in the top five in the country in the NCAA Division III 3,000-meter steeplecase, turning in All-America performances at the national championships in Wisconsin in May.

Anna King ’08 was the national runner-up and Cassie Knight ’10 placed fifth. It was King’s fourth All-America honor, capping a senior year that included winning the New England Open and New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) championships in steeplechase. She also won the 1,500 meter run in the New England Division III championships.

King went into the race in Oshkosh with the best steeplechase time in the country this season, 10:34.65. She finished at 10:27.56, just five seconds behind winner Caitlin Bradley of Dickinson College. Knight, the youngest runner in the top five, was just 17 seconds off the championship pace. She took second in the NESCAC meet in April.
