Tough finish for Lokedi in 5K
Close, but no cigar…KU’s Sharon Lokedi made a game try to double in the NCAA 5000 meters race today in Eugene, after winning the 10K on Thursday.
She stayed with the leaders and was in first until she ran out of gas with about a lap to go. Mizzou’s Schweizer won the race for the second year in a row. Lokedi finished back in the pack.
Still, a great meet for Sharon…add her name to the list of great KU distance runners along with Glenn Cunningham, Jim Ryun, Wes Santee et al. Well done !
@nwhawkfan ran out of gas! Classy girl
