For the next 4 hours leading up to our first college championship, we have high school 4×400’s. As the times drift under 4:00 and the 3:55, we’ll post them here.
Update at 3:15 . . . we’ve had 20 heats, but none under 4:00 yet . . . . faster times are ahead. The temps are warming (a bit), with the sun in and out of the clouds.
Finally, a 3:58.80 from Bishop McNamara in the 24th heat (event 37) . . . more sub 4:00’s to come.
Hempstead (NY) wins event 39 in 3:55.3 to take over the top spot. We’re approaching the fastest sections (40-46)
Event 42 had three teams under 4:00, with Garden City (NY) running 3:56.
Event 43, Manchester (JA) runs 3:46 (!), and Cardozo (NY) in 3:53.
Event 44 really turned it up a notch, with Oxon Hill (MD) in 3:50, Junipero Serra (CA) in 3:51, and Eleanor Roosevelt (MD) in 3:52. Junipero Serra is won of the top teams in the US; we welcome them to the Penn Relays (wish the weather was a little warmer).
Event 45: Vere Tech (JA) in 3:45, Bethel (VA) 3:49, Edwin Allen (JA), 3:49.
Event 46, our final heat, featured the Jamaican national record holders – Holmwood Tech. Holmwood wins in 3:41 (!!). Rancho Verde (CA) finishes 2nd in 3:49.
