A native of Kenmore, Washington, Diekema had a record-breaking day last Friday at the Grand Valley State Big Meet.

A graduate of Ingelmoor High School, Diekema raced her way to a time of 4:52.80 in the mile run, breaking the Calvin record of 4:56.91 set by Lauren Bergstrom in 2009.

Diekema's time on Friday currently ranks fourth on the NCAA III Indoor Track and Field list.

Diekema and her Calvin teammates are back in action on Friday, competing at the GVSU Tune-Up Invitational.
