Success for Blue Jay Runners

The Jesuit Track and Field team has achieved many recent successes in the past few weeks. The most notable of these came from the distance team.

First, the 4×800 relay team, consisting of Seniors Jack Wallace, Stephen Peterman, and Chris Dehart, and Junior Morgan Hebert broke the school record with a time of 8:09. Also Sophomore Jack DesRoches ran a 9:20 in the two mile, breaking another school record. This run is the 5th fastest two mile time run by a sophomore in the nation.

Finally, freshman Michael Vocke ran 4:21 in the one mile, breaking a 36 year old school record and running the fastest freshman time in the country this year. Congrats to the track team on their recent success.
