The Steeple Chase record set by George Townsend in 2000 has finally been broken. Shane Gianetti broke the record time of 10:15.8 in the first steeple chase of his life. And for good measure, he broke it again. In his first race at Mitchell field, in the Section VIII relays, Shane ran a time of 10:13.2. “I was a little nervous about the water jump,” the senior proclaimed, “but after the first two laps, I got used to it. Getting used to the varying heights of the barriers was a more difficult adjustment, but doing hurdle workouts in practice helped a lot.”
