Notre Dame's Mike Glaze was as surprised as anyone when he set a course record during a Del Rey League cross-country meet against Crespi on Thursday at Woodley Park.
"I had no idea that I was running that fast," said the Notre Dame senior, whose 15 minute, 31 second clocking bettered the previous mark of 15:33, set by Crespi's Jeff Jacobs in 1984.
"I didn't know I was on course-record pace until my coach yelled at me with 70 yards to go," Glaze said. "Then I just took off."
Despite Glaze's course record, Crespi (3-1) defeated Notre Dame, 20-35. The Celts, led by Sean Huckaby (16:48) and Stefan Montag (16:56), placed second through sixth.
Notre Dame dropped to 1-3.
