TORRANCE, Calif. — Northern Michigan's Kameron Burmeister set a school record and NCAA provisional mark in the 10,000-meter run at the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays Thursday night.

In an open 'B' division field of 32, Burmeister clocked in at 36:15.71 to take ninth.

"This race was one to be remembered," Burmeister said. "It was such an amazing experience to compete with athletes with such talent and at such a prestigious race. I was able to run a great race, which was also very exciting, and I'm very thankful for the experience. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and the races to come."

Her time was nearly 55 seconds faster than her previous school record of 37:10.44, set en route to her third-place finish at the 2016 GLIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

"Kameron ran an extremely strong race at the Mt. SAC Relays," said head coach Jenny Ryan. "Racing against this high-level competition helped her achieve this great performance. I'm very proud of her for how well she followed her race plan and how tough she ran."

In its 59th year, the Mt. SAC Relays is one of the largest meets in the country and features elite, college and high school athletes. For the second-straight year, it was held at El Camino College's Murdock Stadium due to construction at its iconic location.
