First quarter of the race - Maier had the lead with Rogers comfortably in second, lead group down to about 12. Second quarter - Rogers in the lead. Third quarter - Maier in the lead, with Rogers and Tuliamuk in second and third. Last quarter - Rogers in the lead. Major move with a bit less than 5 laps to go, reducing lead group from 8 to 4. Those four stayed together until the last lap, Rogers kept the lead, and noone was able to follow her. (edit: spelling fixed)

This seems to be a reference to a meet earlier this season, which was hosted by Oregon and included the Aggies. Rogers and Kosinski ran the 5K, Rogers had the lead for most of the race, but then Kosinski ran away from her. (edit: spelling fixed)

Interesting to get such a fast time off of a pace that languished in the middle. There was a big group that had been distanced by up to 100m that not only did not fall back further, but actually joined back (only to be dusted within half a lap as they picked up the pace again) -- that was a 20-30 difference -- of course they would not have closed so fast without the easing.
[And, yes, I was referring to the earlier meet, wherein Kosinski shocked people with her time and finish.]
