Track & Field
Yale senior Robert Miranda (Menlo ’18), who broke the four-minute mile barrier last weekend at Boston University, once again provided a highlight this weekend by setting the school record in the 3000m run. At the Hermery Invitational, Miranda’s time of 7:51.91 in the 3000 broke the 31-year-old Yale record set by Jim Gibson ’90 (7:56.49). A week ago, Miranda ran a 3:59:27 mile

- Yale’s Kyra Pretre (’20) ran a 4:49.90 mile
Kamran Murray (’21), who ran unattached, was 22nd in the Unseeded 3000m race.
