**Long Beach Poly run #3 All-Time USA Boys 4×800**

The High School 4×800 featured a number of good teams, including Holmwood Tech of Jamaica, the indoor US national champion (Abington), and Long Beach Poly.  High schools in the Mid-Atlantic have a long tradition of success in the 4×800, including the national record that was set here at the Penn Relays by Albermarle of Virginia.

At the second exchange, Poly led with Abington right behind, followed closely by Central Bucks West.  Poly opened their lead on the third leg with Abington about 70 yards behind.  Long Beach Poly won unopposed in 7:31.69, #3 All-Time at Penn and in the US, with a 1:49 anchor leg !  This is the 7th 1:49 by a high schooler.

The Penn Relays now has the the Top 3 high school 4×800’s in US history.
