Kate Griewisch from Banner Elk, N.C., runs a school-record 34:39 in the 10,000-meter run on Friday.

Griewisch, a junior at Lenior-Rhyne University, ran a school-record 34:39 and finished second out of 33 runners in the 10,000-meter run at the Raleigh Relays on the Paul Derr Track. The junior from Banner Elk, N.C., was 22 seconds behind the winner: Millersville's Elicia Anderson (34:17).
Griewisch recently competed in the 5,000-meter run at the 2011 NCAA Division II Indoor Track and Field National Championships in Albuquerque, N.M., on Saturday, March 12. She ran a 17:18 and was one place away from earning All-American honors after taking ninth.
Griewisch, a two-time NCAA Division II All-American in women's cross country (2009 and 2010), qualified for the 10,000-meter run in last season's outdoor track and field national championships in Charlotte, N.C.  She also finished ninth there and was one place off of earning All-American accolades with a time of 35:34.
The Lenoir-Rhyne Track and Field Teams compete on Saturday at the Weems Baskin Invitational in Columbia, S.C. Griewisch is also planning to once again run in the prestigious Penn Relays on April 28-30 in Philadelphia, Pa.
