#PennRelays: KC, STETHS qualify in three relay finals at Penn
PHILADELPHIA, USA – Kingston College and St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) will be represented in three Championships of Americas (COA) finals on Friday’s second day of the 127th Penn Relays Carnival at Franklin Field in Philadelphia after Thursday’s qualifying.
Both schools will contest the 4x100m, 4x400m and 4x800m.
Six Jamaican schools are in the Championships of Americas 4x100m final, seven in the 4x100m international final, five in the 4x400m finals and two in the 4x800m final.
Kingston College, STETHS, Wolmer’s Boys’, Jamaica College, St Jago and defending champions Camperdown High will contest the 4x100m COA final.
St George’s College, Calabar High, Excelsior High, Herbert Morrison Technical, St Catherine High, Edwin Allen and William Knibb Memorial will contest the International finals for the next nine overseas schools that did not make the COA final.
St Jago High, STETHS, Edwin Allen, Kingston College and Calabar High will line up in the 4x400m final, while Kingston College and STETHS will be the standard bearers in the 4x800m decider.
It was a tough day for Jamaica College on the track as after they were disqualified from the 4x800m, their third leg runner in the 4x400m fell about 40m metres from the change over, killing any hopes of advancing.
