Jacob Kirk of Anchorage turned in one of the top performances for Montana State University at the Big Sky Championships in Sacramento, Calif.

The freshman runner sliced more than 10 seconds off his personal-best time in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, crossing in 9 minutes, 14 seconds.

His seed time was 9:25.

Kirk, of Grace Christian fame, finished eighth overall but was first among freshmen and second among underclassmen.
