We have brought back the Record Breaking articles series. These can range between national, state, county, meet, and school records! So to all coaches, when your team breaks a record please send it firstname.lastname@example.org with any background information you can give. Solid background notes can include splits, how old the record was, a special story or circumstance, even a picture (that we have the rights to use).
This article is aimed for records broken during week four and five of the 2014 Outdoor Season. So we may need to back track to add to the list below. However the future articles in this series will be posted on Mondays or Tuesdays so if you would like to send in the record performances the entry deadline will be Sunday nights!
