Atchoo runs record mile at MPSF championship

Original post made on Feb 24, 2013

Stanford junior Michael Atchoo ran the mile in 3:57.14 to break school and meet records at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation indoor track and field championships Saturday. Atchoo's time was the fastest by any Stanford runner in 27 years, indoors or outdoors. Olympian Jeff Atkinson's outdoor 3:55.16 in 1986 is the only faster mile in school history.
