PALO ALTO, Calif. (April 1, 2006) - Seniors Tenia Fisher and Josh Nygren each set school records this weekend representing the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee track and field teams at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.
Fisher broke the 19-year old school mark in the 800m, while qualifying for the NCAA Regional, and Nygren set the standard in the 3000m steeplechase.
Fisher finished seventh in the 800m, running a time of 2:08.97 to eclipse Hill's time of 2:10.01m dating back to 1987.
