LYNCHBURG, Va. – Guilford College senior Chad Norton set the school record in the 5,000-meter race Wednesday night at the Liberty University Kickoff track and field meet.

Fresh off an All-America finish at last month’s NCAA Division III Cross Country Championships, Norton placed second to Bridgewater College’s Luke Sohl in 15 minutes, 1.29 seconds. He lowered the Guilford record in the event by over six seconds. Teammate Andris Goncarovs set the previous record in the 2013 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championships.

Goncarovs took third in Wednesday night’s race in 15:28.98. Fellow senior David Cason (Clemmons, N.C./West Forsyth) was fourth in 15:33.53, a personal best.

Coach Danny Cash’s full team opens the indoor track and field season Saturday (12/7) at the College Kick-Off Classic at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem.
