There is a sports story brewing in Ojai that could end up being one of the biggest in recent memory. The Nordhoff High School 4-by-800-meter relay team traveled to the Nike Invitational in Redondo last weekend and not only came away with a thrilling victory, but the foursome also ran the nation’s third-fastest time of the year with a blazing 7:57.67.
