Abington Friends seniors Sam Shally, Taalib Holloman, and twins Jack and Chase Balick finished first in the 1,600-meter sprint medley relay in 3 minutes, 37.7 seconds on Friday at the Big Blue Track and Field Classic in New York.

That performance was the best time this year by a team from Pennsylvania, according to MileSplit.

The foursome ran through rain and heavy wind to defeat several nationally-ranked teams, including Monsignor Farrell, MileSplit’s top-ranked team in New York.

The Kangaroos just missed the qualifying time of 3:37 to compete in June’s New Balance Nationals.

“The distance [the entire team] traveled in the three years since I got to AFS … We’ve come light years,” head coach Kyle Rankin said.
