March 17, 2013

University of Arizona runner Molly Callahan of Fairbanks turned in a fourth-place finish in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase at the first outdoor meet, the Willie Williams Classic in Tucson.

The sophomore clocked a time of 11:40.2.

Callahan, of West Valley fame, ran faster during the indoor season when she ran a 10:33 at the Razorback Invitational in Arkansas and a career-best 10:21 at the Husky Classic in Washington.

This is her first season in the steeplechase. Last year she set PRs in the mile [5:40] and 3K [11:29] races.
