After plenty of chaos in the Boys Championships of America’s 4×400 at the 128th running of the Penn Relays and the events leading up to it, Kingston College completed a three-peat in 3:11.86, holding off Excelsior’s effort of 3:12.94 and the American Bullis School’s quartermile prodigy Quincy Wilson, who split 44.69 to anchor their team in 3:13.10 (a few hours removed from qualifying his Maryland high school with an unprecedented 44.37 split).

Although a few seconds off their Champs clinching time of 3:07.65, the quartet of Antonio Forbes, Amal Glasgow, Roshawn Lee, and Marcinho Rose helped KC avenge their earlier narrow loss to Excelsior in the Boys Championship of America 4×100, coming in second with a time of 40.53 to Excelsior’s 40.45, securing their fourth-ever title in the event.

Surviving a scary fall on the second to third leg, which clipped Bullis’ chances to win and be the first U.S. high school team to win the event since Long Beach Poly bested a Yohan Blake-led St. Jago in 2007.

“We put God first, and when you put God first everything comes into place,” exclaimed a grateful Amal Glasgow.
