Andrea Hughes breaks the 5k school record
April 14, 2017

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - For the second night in a row, a school record was broken on the track for the Toreros. Friday evening senior Andrea Hughes set a new mark, finishing the 5k in 16:52.77 to shatter the time ran by Gillian Gorelik three years ago.

“Andrea ran an excellent race,” Head Coach Will Guarino said. “She looked confident and smooth during the first segment of the race. The first part of the race was tight, but Andrea held her own as she did not let to pushing get to her. I felt that the critical moment in the race is where she decided to go after the next pack that was about 12 meters ahead of her. Her move was strong and she paced through a strong 80 second lap. Her two mile split of 10:49 and her ability to attack the segments of the race were wonderful to see.”

“Andrea came into the race confident and she was not going to settle for anything over 16 minutes. She now moves up to the top of the all-time leader board for the 5km.”

The Toreros return to action next weekend at the Triton Invite at UC San Diego.
