The Niwot sophomore is becoming a name to remember after her performance at the 2024 Penn Relays.

It seems as things are lining up perfectly for the sophomore distance star hailing from Boulder, Colorado. 

We're talking about Addison Ritzenhein

The newly-signed NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) athlete with On demolished her personal best in the 3,000m at the Penn Relays on Friday. 

The Colorado distance star led from the gun and forced her competition to chase her down. But alas, she would go on to run a new U.S. No.1 mark of 9:17.81, not only winning the race but wiping out her previous personal best of 9:41.75 by nearly 24 seconds. 

This also puts the reigning Nike Cross Nationals champion at No. 14 on the all-time list for the 3K outdoors and No. 3 for sophomores in history.

With performances such as the one we just witnessed at Penn, it's safe to say this sophomore standout is on the rise. 

She also has plenty of time to keep adding her name to the top of the record books. She's our PR of the Week.
