The Boston University freshman, a 2017 graduate of Highland Park High School, suffered a groin tear in the fall hindering her from running cross country. “I knew I wasn’t going to have much of a crosscountry season,” she said. “I was able to train a little bit before indoors. I had another setback during indoors which was a quad strain. Now, with rehab, I’m feeling a lot better.” Thus far Kriss, for track and field this spring, has competed in one indoor event and an outdoor relay. A distance runner for the Terriers, Kriss surpassed her goal at the Florida Relays that were held March 29-31 in Gainesville, Fla. “I only had a couple of workouts coming back from that second injury,” Kriss said. “I wasn’t really sure about how it would go. My goal was to break 18 [minutes] and I was well under that.” Kriss came in well under her goal and finished the 5,000-meter run in 17 minutes, 39.51 seconds. BU coach Paul Spangler predicted Kriss would break the 18-minute mark and was confident she would go 17:40 in the race. “It’s really funny, I doubt myself sometimes, but coach always knows,” Kriss laughed. Kriss said the experience was a new one for her. The Florida Relays marked her first collegiate outdoor meet of her career. “It was crazy being a freshman and being able to travel with the team,” she said. “It was definitely really nervous with it being a travel meet and one of my first races but it was really good competition.” Kriss’ nerves were eased when she recognized a familiar face at the relays, Ania Grzeszczak, a sophomore at Mercer College. She added that it make the experience that much better. However, being at the Florida Relays as a freshman was a unique experience all around. “It was really crazy,” she said. “We only had a handful of people chosen to go.” Overall, Kriss said she felt like she is performing better as a runner despite the injuries and the limited practice time. She credited her success with BU’s track and field program and her teammates. “In high school I didn’t always have people to push me,” she said. “I’m on a team full of really fast girls and having those people push me has made a huge difference in my training.” Moving forward, Kriss’ goal is to keep building on the positive progress she has made. “I want to make sure I stay healthy by doing my rehab and staying strong,” she said. “I reached a big goal of mine, which was just to break 18. “My next goal is I would like to score at my Patriot Leagues conference meet.”
