Another Record Breaking Weekend


Honestly, HepsNation – congratulations.

The performances completed this past weekend has written all sorts of record books.  If you look at the various schools’ weekend recaps, you can find full listings of updates to various school record books.  But some of those performances will require another massive Ivy League conference record book update.  We got one new conference record, another runner breaking the 4:00/mile barrier, and a third runner a part of an American Indoor Record – we can go more into detail about these events when we announce our Athletes of the Week.

But the quick recap of the Ivy League record book changes:
