IRVINE, Calif. - - While competing on day one at the University of California Irvine's Steve Scott Invitational, one University of North Dakota track and field athlete accomplished a goal he's been chasing for a while. 


Senior Drew Campbell previously held the second spot in UND history with his 3,000 steeplechase time of 9 minutes, 31.74 seconds. He earned his place at the Jim Duncan Invitational in 2016. Today, he broke the school record with a time of 9:22.87. 


The record was previously held by Chris Carbonneau with a time of 9:27.44. He had held the record since 1992.


“Drew's been hunting that record for two years,” said UND head coach Kevin Galbraith. “The High Performance Center is paying off and this is a perfect example.”


The Fighting Hawks continue competition at the Steve Scott Invitational tomorrow. They will also compete at the Al Cassell Relays hosted by the University of Jamestown.
