MU's Schweizer wins another national title

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- For the second time in less than four months, Missouri's Karissa Schweizer is a national champion.

Schweizer won the 5,000 meter run at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on Friday night. She set a school record with a time of 15:19.14.

"I definitely just went with the way the race played out and I was just trying to stay relaxed either way," Schweizer said. "I was planning for it to go out hard with the girls I was in it with and make it an honest race. I was really happy about it and stayed as

relaxed as I could till 400 to go."

Schweizer also won the NCAA Cross Country title in November. The Mizzou junior is the first female athlete in school history to win two national championships.
