Lukas Verzbicas, who ran a personal best of 4:03.88 for the mile last weekend at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix. Verzbicas was making a run at the Gerry Lindgrens 44 year old prep record! Verzbicas made a game run of it, hitting the mile mark in 4:15.1 and hitting the finishing line in 8:43.2 (4:28.1 last mile)! Verzbicas time is the number three prep time ever!
