Higdem is first in a steeplechase heat
Kari Higdem, a senior at Columbia University in New York City, won the second heat of the Women's 3,000-meter Steeplechase at the Penn Relays Thursday evening in Philadelphia.
However, the 2005 Willmar graduate's time of 10:48.58 did not qualify for a medal.
Higdem will compete in the Ivy League meet May 9 and the NCAA Regional in North Carolina May 29.
