Central Connecticut's indoor 3K and outdoor 5K school record holder, junior Brittany Mendelson, added her name to the women's track and field history books once again Friday, May 12th at the ECAC Championships at Princeton. Mendelson finished in eighth place at 35:38.79 surpassing Krisztina Dearborn's four year old outdoor 10,000 meter run record of 35:49.81 ('13).
Mendelson set the 3K indoor record, 9:57.86, at the John Thomas Terrier Invitational, and finished with the fastest outdoor 5K time in program history of 17:01.23 at the Mt. Sac Relays.
