Kiplagat, a Kenyan native, was the South Atlantic Conference's Runner of the Year and qualified for Nationals by winning the individual crown at the conference meet. In a field of 264 of the best runners in all of Division II, Kiplagat finished 82nd.
Kiplagat's time of 24:17.2 in her final collegiate race placed her in the top third of the most competitive field she has faced.
