Matthew Graham Sets Scottish U20 Record

DePaul Track and Cross Country Star Matthew Graham set the Scottish U20 mark for the indoor 3,000-meters at the Indiana Relays in a time of 8:18.22. Link to Scottish Athletics Story.

Matthew Graham, already regarded as one of the Blue Demon's most talented cross country runners of all time by winning each of his regular season xc starts in 2009, became a part of track and field history Saturday after clocking a 3,000m performance of 8:18.22.

Not only does that break Chris Birchall's 2002 all-time best time of 8:19.69, but counts as the sophomore's second BIG EAST qualifying mark of the season.
