Nationally-Ranked Cougars

Claire Seymour and Kenneth Rooks lead the way among 10 Cougars ranked in the nation's top-10 so far this season. Last Friday, Seymour clocked a school-record time of 2:00.04 in the 800-meters at the Bryan Clay Invitational. She broke Julie Jenkins' 1987 school record of 2:00.50, jumping from No. 5 to No. 1 all-time at BYU. The time kept her on pace at second nationally among mid-distance runners.

Rooks recently improved on his season-best in the steeplechase at last Thursday's Bryan Clay Invitational, leading all 132 runners in the event after blazing across the line at 8:31.83 to remain No. 2 in the nation. The runner-up was nearly nine seconds behind.
