GRINNELL, Iowa -- Brandeis University senior Kate Warwick (Boxborough, Mass./Acton-Boxborough) finished in 12th place in the 5,000-meter run today at the NCAA Division III Women's Indoor Track and Field championships at Grinnell College.
Warwick, who was seeded third in the event headed into the meet, ran in a big pack for the first 2,000 meters. As a lead pack emerged featuring two runners each from eventual meet champion Wartburg College and Johns Hopkins University, Warwick stayed near the front of the second pack. As the leaders extended their advantage, Warwick fell off the pace and eventually finished with a time of 17:53.35, around 35 seconds out of the top eight which would have garnered her All-America status. With only one Brandeis competitor, the Judges did not score any points at the meet.
