Grasiela Navarro continues to add herself to the Pratt Community College track record book. Navarro tied Becky Nelson’s 2003 indoor mile record by crossing the line in 5:30 at Saturday’s NJCAA Championship meet.

Navarro has been sidelined most of the indoor season as she nursed an injury that actually started last December.
