Princeton men's track & field senior Donn Cabral wasn't the only Princetonian impressing at the 2012 USATF Oxy High Performance Meet in California on Friday, May 18. Ashley Higginson '11 ran an incredible 9:46.83 to finish in second place.

Higginson's time was a personal best as she finished behind the World leader Bridget Franek. She missed the Olympic "A" qualifying standard by just 0.83 seconds.

She blew by favorites Delilah DiCrescenzo, Pan-American Games champion Sara Hall and Puerto Rican record holder Beverly Ramos.

Another notable performance was Liz Costello '10 in the 5,000. Costello finished fourth at 15:45.11 right behind Deena Kastor, an eight-time national champion in cross country.
