4×1 Team Runs into History Books at Penn Relays

April 29, 2011

The 4×100 meter relay team of Khoren Lawson, Jon Wentling, Andrew White and Taylor Colucci turned in the 2nd fastest time in school history and the fastest time for a Stony Brook team at the Penn Relays with a 43.65 on day 2 of the world’s most prestigious relay carnival.  The only mark ahead of them in the Stony Brook record books was set in 2007 by Terrance Anderson, Jon Bute, Pete Carmel and Mike Cox who ran a 43.34 at the State Championships.  This year’s team is a month ahead of that team’s pace and ran this time without the benefit of blocks at the start.

It was a beautiful day at Franklin Field as the boys took the track with temperatures hovering around 67° and a light breeze keeping the radiating track at bay.  Lawson set the pace with a 10.9 leg, gave a clean handoff to Wentling who ran the best split of the day in 10.6, then gave way to White who turned in a 10.7 before placing the baton in the hands of Colucci who separated from the rest of the field by more than a second, finishing with an 11.1.  The boys finished 2nd out of 9 teams, only losing to Junipero Serra from California who turned in the best american time in the small schools and the 5th best mark overall.  The boys finished 32nd out of 270 small schools, 21st among american schools, and 68th out of 536 combined small and large schools.

The boys are currently the #1 team in New York State Class C and the #14 team overall in New York.
