Battling it out in the 4x4 heats

Battling it out in the 4x4 heats

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.
