San Leandro Teacher Sets Another Running Record

Bancroft Middle School teacher Jim Sorensen set a new record for the men's elite mile at the 42nd annual Hartshorne Memorial Masters Mile held at Cornell University on Saturday January 24, 2009. With a time of 4 minutes, 17.08 seconds, Sorensen eclipsed the record set in 1993 by John Bermingham and the fastest time in the events history.
