Disclaimer! There was an insane amount of results to pour through, if we missed anyone and you want to give them a shout out, comment below!!!
Alum! Highlight had to be Exeter’s Jake Winslow’s (Dartmouth) attempt to break 4:00 in the mile while running for Dartmouth. While he came within a few seconds crossing in 4:01.83, given a better race, expect Winslow to become a sub 4 minute miler soon.
