Villanova fans cheer on the Wildcats in the DMR, but to no avail.

I'm not sure anyone had the Wolverines in the office pool, but they won the women's college distance medley relay.

Danielle Tauro, Serita Williams, Geena Gall and Nicole Edwards combined for a time of 10:49.58, the second-fastest in Penn Relays history.

Tennessee (Brittany Sheffey, Latonya Loche, Phoebe Wright and Sarah Bowman) finished second in 10:50.51, the fourth-fastest time ever.

Penn and Villanova were also in the Championship of America race. The Quakers (Claire Kim, Shaunee Morgan, Jesse Carlin and Stacy Kim) finished sixth in 11:08.83, and the Wildcats (Ali Smith, Makalia Griffith, Akilah Vargas, Frances Koons) finished seventh in 11:09.48.

The DMR record, 10:48.38, is held by the 1988 Villanova team of Kathy Franey, Michelle Bennett, Celeste Halliday and Vicki Huber.

For those who don't know, the four legs of the DMR are 1200 meters, 400 meters, 800 meters and 1600 meters, in that order.

In the two Philadelphia high school girls' 4x400-meter races, Paul Robeson (Katurrah Hayman, Shatievah Lewis, Anya Curtis, Dashera Richardson) won the Public League in 3:55.99, and West Catholic (Chante Moore, Mariame Conde, Brittany Robinson, Michelle Davis) won the Catholic League in 3:54.98.

Full results from today's races are available at the Relays' official website.

Back in a bit with a video feature and notes from the night races.
