#PenRelays2018 coverage is brought to you from Franklin Field Stadium (April 26-28) by WIHCON
Calabar landed the only Penn Relays title that has been eluded them over the years, the High School Boys’ 4×800 Championship.
On Saturday’s final day, the Red Hills Road-based boys not only win, but their stunning 7:26.09 is the new Penn Relays record.
Devannah Gayle led off with 1:53.63 to Rivaldo Marshall 1:51.17, but Calabar at this stage trailed Jamaica College, who was put in a very good position by Dugion Blackman’s 1:50.54 second leg split.
Kimar Farquharson, who received the baton in third behind JC and STETHS, ran impressively to make sure Jovan Taye Williams, on anchor, had a easy passage home. Williams took them home in 1:50.70 as not even Jauavney James’ 1:48.47 split, the best of the day, could stop them.
James’ St. Elizabeth Technical team, the dethroned and eight-time champions, finished second in 7:27.54.
Jamaica College (JC) with Dugion Blackman, who had the second fastest split, 1:50.54secs, finished third in 7:32.32.
