The University of Notre Dame track and field team travels to Tempe, Arizona, to compete in the Sun Angel Track Classic at Arizona State on April 7-8.
The Irish are coming off a busy weekend that featured split-squad meets at Stanford, Texas and Texas State. Notre Dame distance and middle distance runners, in particular, turned in performances that moved them into the national conversation.
Sophomore Anna Rohrer (31:58) ran the fastest 10,000m race in the world this season, setting an Atlantic Coast Conference record and recording the seventh-fastest time in NCAA history. Senior Chris Marco recorded a time of 3:43.98 in the 1,500m at Stanford and currently ranks 15th in the country this season.
Graduate student Molly Seidel made her return to the track and ran her first 10,000m race since winning a national championship. Seidel, who competed in the second heat at Stanford, placed first with a time of 33:19.60 and finished just one second shy of her personal record.
