New Mexico’s Ednah Kurgat has been named to the Women’s Mid-Indoor Watch List for The Bowerman as announced by track and field and cross country coaches and The Bowerman Watch List Committee Wednesday.
In her only race this season, the junior posted the top time in the 5,000-meter with 15:14.78 at the Sharon Colyear-Danville Season Opener on Dec. 1. The time registered as the third-fastest time in NCAA history in the event and currently still holds as the top time in the NCAA this season. Her time also broke her own school and Mountain West indoor record in the event.
Per The Bowerman release, 18 women were recognized by the committee, with 10 of those earning enough votes to be selected for the Watch List. The next one will be released on Feb. 27.
