The Kenyan Comet 6 National Championships... and Counting

Silas Kisorio has won more national championships than any student-athlete in OC history.

And he may not be done yet.

The sophomore from Eldoret, Kenya, captured two national titles at the recent NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, giving him six for his career.

Kisorio won the 800-meter and 1,600-meter runs at Outdoor Nationals after taking the 800 meters and the mile at Indoor Nationals in March. 

In the fall, he became OC’s first national champion in cross country.

His five (five!) national titles in the 2009-10 athletic year came on the heels of his 800-meter championship at the NAIA outdoor meet last spring. 

He holds numerous school records, highlighted by his time of 3:57.34 in the mile.

Overall, Kisorio is a 12-time NAIA All-American (two times in cross country and 10 times in track and field).
