Penn Relays: Central Bucks South, Conestoga, Norristown advance to boys' 4x100 large school final

Several Southeastern Pa. schools won their heats in the boys’ 4x100-meter relay qualifiers Friday morning and early afternoon. Though none of the schools qualified for Saturday’s 1:35 p.m. Championship of America, Central Bucks South, Conestoga and Norristown earned lanes in the 4x100 large schools’ final at 1:40 p.m Saturday. Wissahickon is listed as an alternate for the race. Central Bucks South was eighth among large schools in the qualifiers, running a 42.60 with Robert Knuckles, Yacine Zerdoum, Tyler Dougherty and Jon Eisemann. Conestoga (42.78 seconds) was 12th in the large schools’ division. The Pioneers’ runners were Kurt Whiteman, Mariel Nzouenkeu, Will Betts and Curtis Baylis. Norristown closed 14th with a time of 42.82 seconds behind Tyler Smith, Joey Smith, Marcus Golson and Jahquil Hargrove. Wissahickon, which is hoping for a current large school qualifier to drop out and leave an open slot, relied on Tyrone Clayton, Tyreece Clayton, Myron Ross and Eric Jones for a 42.90. C.B. South actually did not win its qualifying heat; Conestoga and Norristown did. Simon Gratz won its heat in the large schools’ division qualifiers but did not advance. Local winners in their respective small school heats who did not advance were Great Valley, The Haverford School, Kennett, Malvern Prep and Strath Haven.
