Bumbalough Sets Personal Best for 6th at Occidental

At the USATF High Performance meeting at Occidental College, it was Andrew Bumbalough raising his game the most, among KIMbia athletes. Running 3:37.15 for 6th place in a very quality field, Bumbalough was barely a half-second out of first, and bettered his previous personal best, set in New York two years ago. In the same race, teammate Evan Jager continued a rapid return from nearly a year away from racing, running what he called a “really, really stupid” race — but still improving two-seconds from his performance at Stanford and getting to within almost half a second of his PB. His final time was 3:38.80.

Delilah DiCrescenzo made an injury-delayed 2011 debut and impressed with a very solid steeple, clocking 9:50.12 and placing 4th. The mark is her fastest season-opener ever, her 4th fastest steeple ever, and has her ranked 4th in the United States this season.

Next on the agenda for KIMbia track athletes are Diamond League meets in Eugene and New York.
