Kim Conley and Mary Cate Quiett, both members of the Sacramento Running Association’s Elite Team, delivered personal-best performances Saturday at the Husky Classic in Seattle.
Conley, a former UC Davis standout, won the invitational 3,000 meters at the indoor meet in 8 minutes, 57.62 seconds. Her race follows a standout 2011 outdoor season that included a second-place finish in the USA 5K Championships and a third-place effort in the USA 10K Championships.
Quiett, who ran for DePaul before moving to Davis, finished third in the invitational 800 in 2:04.91.
Both Conley and Quiett are focusing their 2012 efforts on the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, set for June 22-July 1 in Eugene, Ore.
