Cal's Dinzeo shatters PSAC, Cal records

California University Aaron Dinzeo, a junior from Sidney, Ohio, broke the record in the 10,000-meter run and recorded the fourth-fastest time in all NCAA divisions this year while competing at the Stanford Invitational late Friday night.

Dinzeo finished fourth overall while running in a field of 40 runners. He crossed the finish line in 28:40.88 and automatically qualified for the NCAA Championships. He also qualified for the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships from June 26-29 in Sacramento, Calif.

Dinzeo broke the school and conference record, which was set by former All-American Christopher Clark in 2009, by more than 22 seconds.

A four-time NCAA All-American, Dinzeo completed the opening 5,000 meters in 14:27 before running the last half in 14:13. He took the lead with about one mile remaining and ran 4:25 in his last mile.
