Kessler, a student at Skyline High School in Ann Arbor, beat the previous record of 3:57.81 set by Drew Hunter in 2016.

Kessler finished third in the race behind former Olympian Nick Willis and winner Takieddine Hedeilli of Texas Tech.

Kessler, who plans to run at Northern Arizona, finished second in the Michigan cross country championship last fall.
