Curley at Penn Relays
GEORGE CHAMBERS has been invited to join TEAM NSSF, the National Scholastic Sports Foundation, to compete in the Carribean games in June. He is one of 28 invited to this prestigious event with all expenses paid.
THE PENN RELAYS
The Penn Relays is the world's largest annual track and field meet, with more competing athletes and cheering fans that at any other meet. Initiated as a means of rejuvenating track at the host University of Pennsylvania, it introduced the relay concept to the world. The meet is in its 115th year and Coach Gene Hoffman '69 calls it "the Super Bowl of track." "It is hard to imagine the level at which the Curley athletes compete," said Hoffman, "to be able to hold our own at the Penn Relays." Needless to say, he was proud of their effort!
PENN RELAYS RESULTS
Curley placed 4th out of 9 in its heat of the 4x100 with a time of 44.7 seconds. This was a good result, given that Curley ran the race with two subs.
In the 4x400 Curley placed a close 2nd in our heat, losing on a lean. I wish the race was an inch further. The time I recorded was 3:25.5.
Jacob Peery: 53.54
George Chambers: I had 46.80 and another coach had 47.2. I can't believe I could have been more than .5 off. Still it was an outstanding split whatever the official time was.
Matt GreenHill: 52.21
John Rybak: 52.95
