New standard

Athens senior Tony Tonkovich (right) set a new school record in the 1600 when he posted a personal-best time of 4:19.77 during a meet at Meigs High School on Tuesday. Tonkovich, who is joined by Athens head coach Adam Gonczy, broke the previous record set by Phillip Dakhnovets in 2010. Tonkovich now holds the school records in the 800, 1600 and 3200, as well as the 5K cross country mark. Athens will run in the Division I district tournament on Thursday at Marietta College.
