Christiansen '18 Breaks Records

Southern Vermont College and the Bennington Banner both reported on the results of the Division III New England Regional Qualifier in cross country. 

Annika Christiansen '18 had a record-breaking time in the race. She was the first in SVC history to finish in less than 24 minutes. 

"She is now the owner of the Mountaineers' 5K and 6K records after she set a new 5,000 meter mark last year. On Saturday, she surpassed SVC Hall of Famer Kathleen Newton to break the school best by 37 seconds. Kristiansen's time in Gorham was also 1:56 better than her previous personal record for a 6K race," the Banner reported.
