The Mt. Lake Area-Comfrey boys track team rewrote a portion of the school record book Friday, as the Wolverine boys took third at the Giant Relays in LeSueur. The 4x800 relay team of Kody Wassman, Ethan Schroeder, Zach Klassen and Caden Swoboda ran a time of 8:26.28.

Despite the record-breaking time, the Wolverine team still finished second in the meet.
