The previous record, set by Luke Conti in 11996, was 56.80.

And while Cameron Duffield from Saranac won the event in 53.69 seconds, Scanlon’s time is the fourth best among sophomores in the entire country, according to a press release from Stony Brook. Prior to running in the federation meet, Scanlon won a state championship in the New York State Association of Independent Schools.
