MANHATTAN – A Linn sprinter’s run for a school record resulted in a near miss, but actually spurred a record run by a Hanover sprinter during the Manhattan Small Schools Meet on Thursday. Linn senior Kurt Van der Merwe decided to sit out all of his normal sprinting events before the 400 meter dash in order to try to go after the 1978 Linn school record by Mark Simcox, who ran a 50.5 second quarter-mile.
