Justin Bullock sets new MIT Track and Field Record

Junior Justin L. Bullock finished in third place at Northeastern University’s Jay Carisella Track and Field Invitational, held at the Boston University Track and Tennis Center. He crossed the line in 8:19.12, breaking the MIT record of 8:20.69 set by Ben Schmeckpeper in 2005.

Bullock was the lone MIT runner to attend the invitational. He last competed at the NCAA Division III New England Region Cross Country Championship three weeks ago.

MIT has an unofficial Intrasquad Meet on 12/15, and an Alumni Meet on 1/12, but will not compete intercollegiately until 1/19 in the Harvard Open.
