Supinski broke his own 600-meter record, which he set last year at the St. John's quadrangular Feb. 20 with a 1:22.63. On Feb. 3, he posted a 1:21.67. It's the second-fastest time in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference this season. It was the second-fastest time of the event.
He then ran a 49:49 to become the first Cobber to crack the 50-second barrier in the 400 dash. His broke the old record of 50.45 set in 2008 by Josh Smith. His record time placed him third and is the fastest time in the conference. It's also the eighth-fastest run in Division III this season.
Hannah Lundstrom, another former Warrior, finished third in the 200 dash for the Cobber women at 26.39.
Former Warriors Maria West and Sara Whiteman helped the Cobber women's distance relay to fifth place.
Staples-Motley High School graduate Jaelin Beachy of North Dakota State University finished seventh in the 60-meter hurdles with a 9.50.

Beachy's former teammate, and current Cardinal and Brainerd Warrior athlete Millie Klefsaas, has signed a national letter of intent to compete for the North Greenville University track team in South Carolina.
