New York - It may only be the first weekend for most high schoolers, but the harriers have officially been at it since August 20th. While most teams will have their first meet in the books next week, several teams elected to not wait out the week. Check out below for only some of the highlights from the area.
To some, winning a Penn Relays Gold Watch is a goal just as, and even sometimes moreso important than winning a national championship. Watches are awarded only to the overall American winners in Championship of America events at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, kicking off for the 118th time next Thursday at Franklin Field. In some cases, most notably the sprints, it is harder to win a spot on the top of the medal stand than it is to win a national championship. This fact is because of the international draw the relays bring to Philly; currently, there are 62 schools registered that are not from the United States, with Jamaica the most represented foreign country with 32 individual schools. For some, winning a watch means beating the world. While the main events remain the short relays, specifically the 4x100m and 4x400m, the distance relays and open events are available on an invite basis. And with the the high quality meet comes a high caliber field in each of the 4 invitational distance events. We broke down the competition to help you see where the action may take place.

Amidst the uncertainty each team’s body language could not have been more different. While St. Anthony’s exchanged high fives and congratulatory hugs, Chaminade’s body language told another story.
