HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The awards continue to roll in for HU junior Adrien Gentie after his outstanding race Friday night at Manchester University’s Hokum Karem.

Not only was Gentie deemed the fastest male of the meet for running the quickest mile of the day, his 4:28 mile also proved a course record as was his compiled four-mile time of 18:37. Up against 39 other pairs, the junior teamed up with Aaron Hendryx to win the race with an overall time of 38:17.2 for a 4:47 per mile average.
