It’s been a record setting day at RBJHS. R. Hodel broke the school record for the mile, with a time of 5:12. The previous record was 5:15 , set by Tyler Rasmuson during the 2002-03 school year. 45 minutes later, O. Surratt broke Hodel’s record by 18 seconds, running the mile in 4:54. Congratulations to both boys on an amazing accomplishment!
