It was a record-setting day for the Malibu High School track team in the Marie Smith Malibu Invitational on Saturday, March 20.
Junior Caroline Pietrzyk finished with a time of 5 minutes and 2.93 seconds in the 1,600-meter run. The time not only eclipsed her personal best of about 5:11.00, but also set a new track record.
“I feel pretty good,” Pietrzyk said about her record-breaking time. “I wanted to go a little bit faster, but it’s good for an early-season race and I’m pretty proud of it.”
