SEATTLE, Wash. - Eight Long Beach State distance runners kicked off the 2013 indoor track and field season at the UW Invitational, and senior Rosa Del Toro highlighted the group by establishing a school record in the 3000m Saturday at Dempsey Indoor.
Del Toro shattered her own 3000m record by nearly 13 seconds as she clocked in at 9:22.08 to place 11th overall. Del Toro's previous best was 9:34.81. Classmate Michelle Thompson also came in 29th place in her first indoor race (10:10.84).
In the other invitational sections, senior Matt Maldonado finished sixth among collegiate athletes and ninth overall in the mile with a time of 4:07.50. Maldonado currently owns the school record at 3:59.08 as he is the only 49er in program history to run a sub-four mile.
Senior Gabe Hilbert had a ninth-place performance in the men's 800-meter run, crossing the finish line in 1:52.94. He was just .82 seconds off his personal record which ranks fourth in Long Beach State history.
Senior Jake Dawson established a lifetime-best 8:30.57 in the 3000m to rank sixth among the 49er all-time top-10.
Long Beach State continues the indoor season in two weekends when it heads back to Seattle for the Husky Classic (Feb. 8-9). The 49ers will also make their way to USAF Academy, Colo., for the Air Force Team Challenge on Feb. 9.
