Before she departs for Oregon, Liberty sophomore Ednah Kurgat spent a few minutes previewing the women's 5K at the 2016 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships with Alan York of the Liberty Flames Sports Network.

Kurgat will make her debut at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships Saturday at 8:25 p.m. Eastern at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. Her 5K race will be televised live on ESPN.

Kurgat, a native of Eldoret, Kenya, will attempt to become the first Lady Flame ever to earn All-America honors in NCAA Division I women's cross country, indoor track & field and outdoor track & field during the same athletic year. She previously placed 12th in cross country and ninth in the indoor 5K.
