Altoona vs. the World


Seven of the eight qualifiers for the High School Boys' 4x100-meter Championship of America are from Jamaica. The eighth will be defending home turf.

Altoona Area High School is the only American school in the final, and its qualifying time of 42.17 seconds was the worst of the bunch. The other schools are (from fastest down) Calabar, Herbert Morrison, Wolmer's Boys, Munro College, St. George's, Kingston College and William Knibb.

Somebody call Lake Placid.

If there's a school you root for, a race result you want to know about or a Penn Relays memory you want to share, leave a comment in The Paddock on the right side of the blog.
