Freshman Kristen Malloy began her indoor track season on the right foot as she guided Hereford to a win in the Western Indoor Track Classic at CCBC-Catonsville on Saturday.

Malloy, who scored 36 of the Bulls' 104 points, won the 3,200 in 11 minutes and 47.5 seconds and became the fourth runner in school history to break 12 minutes.

Malloy anchored the 3,200 relay team, which won in a time of 10:52. She also finished second in the 800 (2:40.7) and 1,600 (5:32.4) runs.

"She's probably one of our most impressive girls on the team," coach Sam Bowen said. "These are outstanding times, and I've never had a freshman girl do this well."

Malloy began running last year when she and her father, Patrick, entered local road races together.

She is coming off a strong cross country season in which she finished third at the Class 2A state championships.
