BOZEMAN -- Ana Richter of Rocky Mountain College established a school record in the mile Friday at the Montana State University Open indoor track meet and also qualified for the NAIA national championships.

Richter's clocking of five minutes, 14.05 seconds was good enough to place her sixth overall.

After altitude adjustment, her time becomes 5:07.87, which currently ranks her fourth nationally in the NAIA, Rocky coach Alan King said.

Richter, a junior from Billings Skyview, had previously qualified for the indoor nationals in the three-kilometer run.

Nationals are set for Feb. 28-March 2 at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.

Rocky's Rachael Hart finished fifth in the women's 3K on Friday with a time of 10:59.65.

Teammates Selene Johnson and Megan Breeding both broke the school record in the 800 meters with altitude adjusted times of 2:23.66 and 2:24.90, respectively.

For the RMC men, Shawn Peden placed fourth overall at 2:00.75 in the 800 meters. That time places him second on Rocky's top 10 list.

Teammate Noah Kiprono was sixth in the 3K at 8:53.68.
