Drake saw a trio of men break the 4-minute barrier in the invitational mile as Eric Avila won in 3:58.81, which ranks fourth in the world this year.

Drew Hunter, an up and comer after an outstanding high school career in Virginia, was second in 3:58.83 and Brannon Kidder ran 3:59.80 to finish third.

With those three performances, Relays fans now have seen 34 sub-4-minute miles, a feat first accomplished at Drake by Steve Scott in 1979.
