BOSTON - Loyola senior Chris Heibell ran a personal-best time in the mile at the ECAC/IC4A Indoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday at Boston University.
Heibell clocked a time of 4:11.19 to finish fifth in his heat and 14th overall in the event.
"Chris' place is the best ever for a Loyola runner at this meet," said Loyola Head Cross Country Coach Rick Woods. "We are really proud of his efforts in qualifying and racing at this level."
Fellow Loyola runner Gian Caccia will compete in the finals of the 5,000-meter run at the meet on Sunday.
