Riley Masters of Bangor and Ben True of North Yarmouth won events Sunday at the Payton Jordan Invitational track and field meet held at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
Masters, the former University of Maine and University of Oklahoma distance standout now competing professionally for Brooks Running in Seattle, Washington, set a meet record with his winning time of 3 minutes, 38.42 seconds in the men’s 1,500-meter run.
The effort was 1.23 seconds of his personal best, which he achieved two years ago.
True, the former Dartmouth College star who now runs for Saucony and trains in Hanover, New Hampshire, won the 5,000 meters in 13:02.74, edging Somalia’s Hassan Mead by 0.06 seconds.
True’s time was a personal best for the distance by nearly nine seconds, with his previous best 5K time on the track 13:11.59 set last year. It also is the fastest time run in that event in the world so far this year.
