Hogan Breaks His Own UMass Lowell Record with Fine Effort
BOSTON -- UMass Lowell grad student Paul Hogan (Burlington) destroyed the school record in the 3,000 meters Saturday at the John Thomas Terrier Classic hosted by Boston University.
“The race broke down perfectly,” said UML head coach Gary Gardner. “Paul is running with confidence and maturity; he doesn’t make mistakes.”
Hogan punched the clock with a time of seven minutes, 58 seconds, erasing from the record book the time of 8:06.45 he scribbled into the book a year ago.
“He’s running well and he’s still getting better,” said Gardner. “There are not too many people in the country who can run with him.”
Hogan finished third in the race, second among college runners in a field of 111 competitors.
Hogan’s time was the fastest posted by an America East runner this season and the seventh fastest in the country.
Not to be overlooked was the time turned in by River Hawk teammate Derek Holmes. Holmes set a personal best with a time of 8:17.16.
