April 15, 2005
Walnut, Calif. - TCU distance runner Kip Kangogo shattered the school record in the 5,000 meter run by more than 17 seconds while competing late Friday night at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif. In doing so, Kangogo became the first TCU athlete to run a 5K under 14 minutes.
Kangogo, a junior from Kabarnet, Kenya, completed the distance in 13:47.11 to place 13th in an all-star field, which featured both collegians and professionals. Kangogo broke the TCU record of 14:04.63, set by David Lagat in May of 1998.
Kangogo, competing in his first season at TCU, was the 2005 Conference USA Indoor Championships Athlete of the Meet after winning four events.
The rest of the Flyin' Frogs track & field squad will compete on Saturday, April 16 at the Oklahoma Invitational in Norman, Okla.
