Lavassas Improves on School Record in California

AZUSA, Calif. – University of Miami distance runner Daphnee Lavassas put together a strong showing late Thursday night at the Bryan Clay Invitational. 

Lavassas was able to improve on her previous school record of 33:59.53 by an impressive 59 seconds, clocking 33:00.60 for a fifth-place finish.

This is the third time that Lavassas has performed the 10000m race in a Miami uniform — her first took place at the 2023 Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif. where she beat 2017’s Gabrielle Hesslau’s time of 35:00.31 to claim the school record. At last season’s NCAA East Preliminary Round, Lavassas clocked 34:27.61.

Next week, Russell Robinson and Edgar Campre will represent the Hurricanes at the 64th Annual Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., while the rest of the team will compete at the LSU Alumni Gold in Baton Rouge, La.
