New Bern Sets New National 4x400 Record!

This past weekend, New Bern High School traveled to the Amory for the New Balance Collegiate Invitational. New Bern was on a mission, and the only thing in their way was national records. After running 3:13.24 at the KTC Invitational on an oversized track, they wanted to prove they could do it on a legal size track. In the process, New Bern posted a 3:13.06 a new PR, with splits from Anthony Hendrix (47.6), Fuquawn Greene (48.7), Miles Sparks (49.0) and Andrew Hendrix (47.5) set their own national record by winning the junior boys 4x400 in 3:13.06, eclipsing Muir High’s 1996 record of 3:13.34.

The Twins, Anthony and Andrew Hendrix competed in the 600 meter run. Anthony took the gold in a time of 1:18.36 while Andrew came in third with a 1:18.89. New Bern also competed in the 4x200 meter relay. New Bern won the 4x200 with a 1:27.06 setting a new personal record.
