For the second consecutive year, a Hanover sprinter broke the 60-meter dash record, while junior Logan Wells (Scottsburg, Ind.) ran the fastest indoor mile since 1994 to lead the Hanover College men’s track & field team at the Anderson University Fred Wilt Invitational.
Freshman Torrey Gardiner (Lafayette, La.) ran 7.16 seconds to top the previous record of 7.17 set by Kris Jenkins in the same meet in 2013.
Wells ran 4:32.39, a five-second personal-best, narrowly missing Tom Powell’s 1994 4:32.30 effort.
Sophomore Nick Jaeger (Terre Haute, Ind.) finished third in high jump (1.88 meters), while senior Brendan Kelly (Indianapolis, Ind.) placed fifth in the 1,000-meter run with a time of 2:43.59.
A small number of the team competed due to winter break.
Hanover finished 14th in the 20-team invitational.
