BOZEMAN — Rocky Mountain College’s Noah Kiprono won the men’s 10K on Saturday in the Montana State Open track and field meet.

The senior from Nairobi, Kenya, won the race in a time 32:04.52, just shy of the stadium record of 31:59. After altitude adjustment, Noah’s time converts to 31:04.93, which establishes a new school record and qualifies him for the NAIA Outdoor National meet.

Kiprono’s time is the seventh-fastest in the nation among NAIA runners this year. He is also qualified for the national meet in the marathon.

Shawn Peden, a freshman from Billings West, finished fourth in the men’s 800 in a time of 1:59.02, the second-fastest time in that event in RMC history.

Rachael Hart set a school record in the women’s 800. Her time of 2:23.97 was good enough for sixth place in the race. Teammate Ana Richter was next in 2:23.99.

Megan Breeding was second in the women’s 10K. She clocked a 42:14.27 with an altitude adjustment to 40:55.80.

Rocky will compete at the Baur Invitational hosted by South Dakota Mines this Friday.
