For the second time in 2 weeks, Roland set a new DFHS record, breaking the record held by Everett Ernst since 1995 in the 5000 meter ( 3.1 mile ) event.
Roland won the championship by 10 seconds over the 2nd place runner, with a time of 15:34, the second best time ever run at Sandhills in a State Championship meet, all divisions.
This is Roland's second individual championship, the first being in the 3200 meter ( 2 mile ) event in Track & Field last spring.
Great job Roland!
