It took redshirt freshman Madeline Trevisan just one try at the 5,000-meter distance to make an impact on the University of Michigan record books, joining the ranks of the program's all-time great distance runners.



Trevisan clocked an impressive 16:21.67 on Washington's oversized 300-meter track to take eighth in her race -- seeded as the second-fastest of the day, but still no easy feat as the UW fields are among the nation's best -- and check in at No. 10 on the all-time Michigan performers list in the event.



The young Wolverine hung with All-American and eventual winner Valley Korir of Washington State, pro Natalie Tanner and Boise State's Grace McConnochie for much of the race, even briefly taking the lead with just over 1,000 meters left. She ultimately fell off the lead pace a lap later and hung on for a very fine debut performance at the distance.



Avery Evenson was 17th in the race in 16:45.08.



Headlining Day 2 action on Saturday will be first the trio of Hannah Meier, Haley Meier and Claire Borchers in the mile starting aa approximately 3:27 p.m. PT, followed by Sophie Linn and then reigning Big Ten champion Gina Sereno at 3,000 meters starting at 4:20 p.m. PT and 4:30 p.m. PT, respectively.

Jacobsen climbed to No. 3 on the all-time Michigan list in the weight throw with a heave of 18.34m (60 feet, 2 inches) on her opening attempt. She passed teammate Bailey Baker, who is taking a redshirt season, on the U-M list.



The performance was good for 18th place on the evening.
