NIN: Breen/Troy breaks DMR record

At the Nike meet, the foursome from Troy High School running as the Breen TC broke a state record in the distance medley that was a third of a century old. Clocking 10:09.20 for 5th place, they shattered the old best of 10:17.1y set by Grosse Pointe North in 1977 at the Spartan Relays.

The all-senior squad of James Yau (3:08.7), Brian Murphy (50.8), Brad Pienta (2:02.0)and Mike Atchoo (4:07.6!) were just 1.62 seconds away from the win in a very close finish. Atchoo came up from 8th place, splitting 60, 63, 64, 60.
