Craig Miller\'s 14:56 earned him this year\'s first American Track & Field Athletes Only Athlete of the Week honors.
While the Boys Varsity Group 1 race overshadowed the meet, they weren\'t the only stellar performances on a perfect day for racing.
In a town that knows a lot about history, Craig Miller, Vince McNally and Brad Miller made some of their own at the Gettysburg Invitational. The Varsity Group One race could arguably be recorded as the fastest prep 5k in Pennsylvania history.
