**Edwin Allen runs under 8:40 – #2 All-Time**
Our second championship of the meet for girls is our first championship of Friday, the girls 4×800 championship. The top qualifier was Edwin Allen of Jamaica.
Edwin Allen had a good lead at the handoff, and opened up almost a 100 meter lead on the second exchange. This lead was maintained into the last leg where Ristanna Tracey, having already won the 400 hurdles on Thursday, increased the lead even further by taking it out under 60 seconds.
By the finish, the lead was a whopping 120 meters, winning in 8:39.22. This was #2 All-Time at the relays, only exceeded by Vere Tech’s legendary 8:37.
