Erin LaFave sets seven Indoor American and Collegiate records
Rochester Institute of Technology and 2009 Summer Deaflympian runner Erin LaFave broke seven of her own records during the Indoor Track & Field season.
LaFave previously held all seven records, and broke all of them. So it also meant she set a new Personal Record time for herself in those events.
The four Women’s Indoor Collegiate Records (ICR) LaFave set was the 1,000m, one mile, 3,000m and 5,000m run. The first three of records listed also was good enough to break the Women’s Indoor American Records (IAR).
LaFave already holds the IAR for the 5,000m with a time of 18:09.80 in 2008. Her ICR record was 18:53.84 which was faster than the 19:06.12 mark she set in 2009. The ICR record took place in the Liberty League Championships at Canton, New York on February 11, 2012.
In the 1000m, LaFave ran a 3:09.52 at the RIT Black/Orange Invitational in Rochester, New York on February 17, 2012, beating 3:12.44, which were both an ICR and IAR in 2009.
In the Mile run, LaFave finished with a time of 5:19.57 also at the Liberty League Championships, improving 22.71 seconds from her older ICR and IAR of 5:42.28 in 2009.
In the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Indoor Championships, LaFave ran a 10:25.91 in the 3,000m which was an improvement from the 10:49.43 mark she set in 2009.
