Running against an elite field, Janusiak finished eighth in the 3,000 meters in 8:47.97, just shy of Cam Davies’ school record of 8:46.71. It was a personal record for Janusiak, a sophomore from South Milwaukee, Wis., and the fastest time in the Midwest Conference this season.

She was less than a second from breaking Erin Schrobilgen’s school record of 5:21.84. Kilgus' time is the ninth-fastest in the Midwest Conference this season.
