A Quick New York Penn Relays Recap

If you win a Championship of America event at the Penn Relays (or are at least the top American team), you take home both a Penn Relays Watch, and a commemorative Gold Watch.  These New Yorker's did just that.

  • Brooke Rauber (Tully) kicked away in the final lap of the 3000m, to nearly match her indoor PB, and win the Invitational race.  She ran to 9:34.21 for the win, three seconds ahead of second place.
  • Fayetteville-Manlius girls bring home their third distance relay title since 2010, taking home the Distance Medley Relay win.  They run a US #2 of 11:45.28, with splits of 3:40.27, 60.41, 2:21.27, and a 4:43.34 anchor by Claire Walters.  Walters would run a US #1 in the Steeple the next day, back home.  This was also a different lineup than ran Indoor Nationals.
  • New York swept the Distance Medley, with Saint Anthony's taking home the boys title in the rain.  With a new US #1 of 10:10.23, they split 3:06.17, 52.14, 1:58.28, and a 4:13.65 anchor by Matthew Payamps.
  • Ryler Gould (Newburgh) capitalizes by a late race stumble by the Jamaican leader, and wins the 400H outright in a new US #1 of 52.55.
