The UW-Platteville 4x200 relay team broke a school record that had stood for a decade during the Drake Relays Friday in Des Moines, Iowa.

Cody Egan (Sr., Davis, Ill./Durand), Matt Bischoff (Sr., Slinger), Casey Goffinet (Fr., Platteville), and Lynn Oyawiri (So., Platteville) covered the 800 meters in 1:28.63. The Pioneers were second in their heat and 11th overall. They broke the 1990 school mark of 1:30.94.

Also Friday, Egan, Goffinet, Oyawiri, and Jordan Olp (Fr., Reedsville) ran the 4x100 relay in 42.57, just missing qualifying for finals. UWP was fifth in its heat and 12th of 26 teams in the preliminary round.

The Pioneers compete at UW-Whitewater Saturday.
