Long-time Whit record falls

COLLEGE SPORTS

For 42 years, Loren McKnight’s record in the 800 meters had graced Whitworth’s track record book, challenged but never passed.

Until Brandon Howell came along. The redshirt sophomore from Clarkston High ran a 1 minute, 51.34 seconds in the college’s Sam Adams Classic to shave .14 seconds off McKnight’s record.

John Blanchette covers that and all the local college’s track news in this notebook from today’s S-R.
