A group of runners competed at the JDL DMR Invitational, with the women bringing home a new school record, in Winston-Salem Friday.

The Texas women set a new school record in the distance medley relay with a time of 11 minutes, 10.55 seconds before conversion due to the JDL Fast Track being a 200-meter flat track.

Alex Cruz, Zola Golden, Gabby Crank and Destiny Collins teamed up for the third-place finish.
