Sophomore Hassan Omar broke the school record and led UMBC to a seventh-place finish at the Princeton Invitational. The Frederick, Md. native completed the 8k course at West Windsor Field in a time of 24:21, besting teammate Brandan McGee’s time of 24:45.65 which was set at last year’s meet at Princeton. Omar placed 16th overall in the competition, leading UMBC across the line and into a tie with America East rival Binghamton. The Retrievers, who won the Pre-Conference Meet back in September, head back to New York for the 2013 America East Championships on Nov. 2.
