The Syracuse Orange track and field teams were back in action last weekend. Returning after the holiday break, the Syracuse sprint and hurdle group headed to Blacksburg for the Virginia Tech Invitational.
For the second time this season, Syracuse has a new indoor school record. Freshman Elijah Millard ran 34.65 in the 300m to break the previous record of Jaquan Holland. Millard’s time was good for 9th in the event.
