Saruni's time ranks No. 2 in the NCAA All-Time Best list, sitting just behind his coach Paul Ereng (1:44.84, 1989).

Saruni Garners Second Straight C-USA Athlete of the Week

UTEP’s Michael Saruni was named the Conference USA Athlete of the Week for the second week in a row the league office announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Saruni followed his stellar week one performance with a world record in the 600m run with a time of 1:14.79 after his performance at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Invitational.

Saruni beat Casimir Loxson’s time of 1:14.92 (2005). The Kenya native also set a facility record held previously by former teammate and 2017 NCAA Champion Emmanuel Korir (1:14.97).

The Miners will return to action on Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Texas Tech Invitational in Lubbock, Texas.
