NCAA Division I Final
June 8, 2007
Sacramento, California, USA
Automatic Timing
1-Anna Willard, Michigan 9:38.08; 2-Lindsey Anderson, Weber State 9:46.48; 3-Barbara Parker, Florida State 9:48.82; 4-Liz Wort, Duke 9:51.76; 5-Kassi Andersen, Brigham Young 9:52.10; 6-Nicole Bush, Michigan State 9:56.68; 7-Jenny Barringer, Colorado 9:59.81; 8-Sariah Long, Weber State 10:05.22; 9-A'Havahla Haynes, Wisconsin 10:07.09; 10-Emily Brown, Minnesota 10:07.40; 11-Catherine Parker, New Hampshire 10:08.16; 12-Bridget Franek, Penn State 10:11.68; 13-Amy Fowler, Brigham Young 10:22.75; DNF-Lindsay Allen, Stanford.

Bush led at end of lap 1 with Willard, Parker and Wort close. Lindsey Anderson set the pace through the next five laps with the same group staying close -- joined briefly in mid-race by Franek, then defending champion Barringer as Franek fell back after 2000m.

Willard moved to the front after sixth water jump and stayed there to the finish, winning with the fastest-ever women's 3000m steeple on USA soil by a citizen of any nation.

Personal bests were achieved in this final by six athletes (Willard, Parker, Wort, Bush, Long, Haynes) and in the heats two nights earlier by Parker, Fowler and Allen.

Courage was shown by BYU junior Kassi Andersen -- coming back from years of recovery after being run over by a truck, but still shy of her 9:44.68 best in 2004. Her recent weeks hint more improvement at the USATF Championships later this month.
