The University of Lynchburg’s Frank Csorba has set a new school record in the 10,000-meter run with a time of 29:37.97 over the weekend at the 2021 Colonial Relays at The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg.

The school record of 30:03 was held by Ricky Flynn. In the 2009-2010 season when Flynn set the old record, he was the cross country National Champion winner in Division III.

Csorba’s time was the best of any D-3 competitor at the event, according to the university. Currently, his time ranks third in the nation.

Csorba, in his sophomore season at Lynchburg, is having an exceptional year thus far. The 5’8” distance runner posted personal bests earlier in the 2021 season in the one-mile at 4:15.92 and 3,000-meter running 8:30.84. Both times then ranked second on Lynchburg’s all-time leaderboard. The times were also early season national top-five numbers.

Most recently Csorba placed himself in the top-five of the Hornet’s 1500m runners. His time of 3:55.28 placed him fourth in the university’s track and field record book for the 1500m.

The Hornets are members of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and are a NCAA Division III university.

The Boydton native is a graduate of Bluestone High School where he received district, region and state honors in cross country and track.
