Track and Field:

Chris Miedema’s school record in the 800-meter run lasted all of seven days. But the junior from Ontario, Canada was happy to see a new indoor track standard set on Saturday. That’s because it was Miedema himself who broke his own record at the final day of the Meyo Invitational. Miedema’s time of 1:51.59 topped the mark of 1:52.28 he recorded last week at the Spire Institute Midwest Open in Geneva, Ohio.Click Here for the full story.
