BROOKINGS, S.D. — Jorey Egeland became the first runner in Montana State Billings indoor track and field history to post the first 15-minute 5k at the South Dakota State DII Invitational on Friday.
Egeland, a senior from Billings, placed second with a time of 14:51.4, shattering the previous record of 15:13.66 by Jamon Rodrigues in 2014.
Egeland followed by winning the 3k race.
"Jorey had a great day," said MSUB coach Jonathan Woehl. "It is rare for a meet to have both the 3k and 5k and even more rare for someone to run both. I am really impressed with the way he ran and I am excited to see what he can do at conference."
Sophomore Rahkei Eyer also ran a school-record 50.82 in the 400 meters. The previous record was 50.84 by Nathan Vanderby in 2014. Eyer is a sophomore from Boulder.
