Koch Turns In Fastest 800M Time In D-II History
Former Washburn HS standout athlete Carsyn Koch has turned heads on the national track & field scene again.This time at the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford University.
Koch, a sophomore at Division II Cedarville University in Ohio, ran the 800-Meter event in 2:02.39. That time is good enough to get her to the U.S. Olympic Women's Trials in Oregon in July.
That time is also the fastest all-time time in NCAA Division II.
Koch already is the D-II national indoor 800M champion.
The NCAA Outdoor Championships are later this month in Florida, May 26-28.
Koch won four high school cross country titles and four basketball titles for the Washburn Beavers.
