Efraimson gets season best; Mel Lawrence PR's in 5000m at Heusden...

In Heusden, Belgium, Camas’ Alexa Efraimson (left/photo by Paul Merca) scored a season best in the 1500 meter run Saturday night at the Nacht van de Atletiek meeting.

Efraimson finished sixth in a time of 4:04.63, eclipsing her previous season best of 4:06.12 set six days ago in Padova, Italy.

US Olympian Colleen Quigley of the Portland based Bowerman TC won the race in a time of 4:03.93.

Washington alum Mel Lawrence earned a marginal personal best in the women’s’ 5000, as she finished 18th in a time of 15:40.18, beating her previous PR of 15:40.26 set in April at the Mt. SAC Relays.

Former Florida State All-American Susan Krumins won the race in a time of 14:53.35, with Bowerman TC standouts Emily Infeld (14:56.33) and Shalane Flanagan (14:58.99) also ducked under 15 minutes.

For the second meet in a row, Shaquille Walker of the Brooks Beasts did not run in a meet that he was entered in.

Brooks Beasts coach Danny Mackey, who is still in Seattle, replied via text that he did not know why Walker was not on the final start list. Walker had an entry issue last week in the Madrid meet.
