Kisorio Excels in Prestigious Race

OC senior Silas Kisorio ran a personal-best and school-record time of 3:55.84 to finish fourth in the Wanamaker Mile during the Millrose Games in New York City.

Kisorio placed second among seven collegiate runners behind Miles Batty of Brigham Young, the reigning NCAA Division I indoor mile champion. 

The invitation-only Wanamaker Mile is considered one of the most prestigious U.S. events during the indoor track season.

“It’s hard to beat this stage, but he’s going to have excellent opportunities because of this race,” said Mark Thompson, OC cross country coach and assistant track and field coach.
