  • Updated: March 2, 2013 - 10:30 PM

Gophers junior John Simons ran the second sub-four-minute mile in school men's indoor track and field history at the Alex Wilson Invite in South Bend, Ind., on Saturday.

Simons had a time of 3 minutes, 59.32 seconds for the second-fastest performance in the event in school history. Only Ben Blankenship's time of 3:57.87 in 2010 ranks higher in the Gophers' indoor record book.

The Gophers distance medley relay team of Harun Abda, Travis Burkstrand, Cameron Boy and Nick Hutton set a school record Friday with a time of 9:29.22.
