The Xavier track team had an unforgettable meet last weekend at the Stanford Invitational. Five school records were broken during the meet that featured many highly accomplished schools and was even broadcasted online.

Possibly the most impressive record to fall was the women's 10,000-meter run. Sophomore Clare Fischer ran the race in a time of 34:39.59, which broke the school record by over a minute. Junior Rachel Clark also had

an impressive showing at the meet where she not only participated in multiple long distance events, but also broke two school records. Clark set the school record in the

1,500-meter run with a time of 4:28.58. This time broke the record that was previously held by her sister. Clark also broke the record for the 800-meter run with a time of

2:10.53. Sophomore Ashley Vincent broke her own record for the 5,000 meter run by running a time of 16:34.74.

On the men's side, sophomore Tom Ohlman broke another record by running a time of 9:03.09 in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Ohlman broke the record that he

had set earlier in the season. Another runner who broke

his own record was Senior Nick Williams, who ran the 100-meterdash in 10.68 seconds. Williams recorded this time in the preliminary rounds and finished eighth overall out of 56 runners. The team will next head to Tennessee to compete in the Searay Relays.
