Our first championship of the day, the High School Girls 4×800, is on the track. There are a number of Jamaican teams that have run very fast times in this race, even if the qualifying times from yesterday’s cold start do not reflect it.
Manchester (JA) leads after one exchange in 2:14, with Edwin Allen right behind (JA).
Now Edwin Allen moves into the lead at the 2nd exchange, followed by Holmwood Tech (JA). Columbia (MD) is our top American team at this moment.
Holmwood Tech brings a 40 meter lead into the last exchange, buoyed by a 2:07 split on the 3rd leg. One to go, and Edwin Allen recaptures the lead.
Edwin Allen wins in 8:44.06, which is #4 All-Time ! Holmwood is 2nd in 8:47, Manchester 3rd in 8:52. A 1-2-3 Jamaican sweep today in the girls 4×800.
