On this day 42 (and 43) years ago, Kevin Lockerbie ’77 turned in memorable performances with the University of North Carolina mile relay team.

In 1978, the freshman joined forces with Wayne Tucker, Sam Brown, and Wayne Miller to win the event at the Big 3 meet in Raleigh vs. Duke and N.C. State in a time of 3:17.3.

Exactly one year later, Lockerbie and a trio of Tar Heels broke the school record with a mark of 3:10.9 to take 4th place at the Carolina Relays.
