PALO ALTO, Calif. - Felix Kitur '11 and Donnie Cowart '08 opened their campaigns to qualify for this year's World Championships this past Sunday, doing so at the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.

Both came up just short, but posted times worthy of building on. Cowart was chasing the 8:26 A standard in the 3K steeple, but came up just shy of the B in finishing ninth with a 8:32.84 clocking. The top four in Cowart's race all achieved that A standard.

Kitur, meanwhile, was second in an 800-meters that saw no one hit the A mark of 1:45.30. Kitur crossed the line in 1:47.28.

Fans should note that unlike Olympic qualifications, it is possible to advance to the World Championships with only the B standard, but only one such runner can do so per running event.

The 2013 World Championships are scheduled for August 10-18 in Moscow, Russia.
