James Stappenbeck '25 broke the school's indoor 1,600-meter record at the New York State Federation Track & Field Championship on Saturday with a time of 4:17.20, lowering his own personal best set last month. Stappenbeck's time was the best of any junior in the event.

In February, Stappenbeck won the 1,600-meter race at the CHSAA Intersectional Championship with a time of 4:17:81, breaking the previous school mark held by Sean Phillips '15.

Stappenbeck is the first Regian to win the indoor track and field 1,600-meter race at the intersectional championship.

Earlier this month, Regis's indoor track and field team won its second consecutive CHSAA A Division championship.
