    WALNUT, Calif. - University of New Mexico junior Michelle Corrigan moved into third on the Lobos' all-time performers list with a strong NCAA provisional qualifying and career-best time of 34:12.31 in the 10,000 meters late Thursday night at the Mt. SAC Relays. Corrigan, who redshirted last spring, finished 12th in her first full outdoor race since 2007.

    Only Kathy Pfiefer (34:06.9 - 1984) and All-American Tangi Galloway (34:07.01 - 1996) ever ran a 10,000 faster for the Lobos than the Green Bay, Wisc. product did on Thursday night.

    Earlier in the evening, sophomore Alex Willis smashed his career best with a time of 9:10.00 en route to a third place finish in his section of the 3,000 steeplechase. Willis' time was just three seconds shy of the NCAA regional qualifying standard.

    The action at the 51st Mt. SAC Relays continues today with the Lobos scheduled to compete in a full slate of races. NCAA mile champion Lee Emanuel is set to run his first 1,500 of the season tonight at 8:40 p.m. (Mountain).
