Oregon wins distance medley without Cheserek at Penn Relays

Judith QuinnApr 29, 2017

Cheserek, who won his 16th and 17th NCAA titles at last month's NCAA indoor meet, was a part of the previous two victorious relays, but Johnson chose to rest him this weekend.

Cleirigh Buttner got the baton for the anchor leg of Friday's race with the Wildcats and Stanford gaining ground on the rest of the pack. "It's nice to know that (Goldstein) will continue in the Ivy League as well, because I will get to keep racing against her and one day to beat her, hopefully". [Junior] Jessica Harris is going to run the mile, [junior] Payton Miller will run the [400-meter leg] and [sophomore] Kelly Hart will handle the [800-meter] leg.

"My sophomore year, we qualified, and it didn't seem like such a big deal because we didn't know much about it", Vlasic said.

Sam Prakel filled in for standout distance runner Edward Cheserek on the anchor 1,600-meter leg and outkicked a tightly packed Penn Relays field to lead OR to victory in the college men's distance medley relay Friday.

"I have confidence in myself and I just remember what I am doing it for and who I am doing it for", Cleirigh Buttner said.

"You hear everybody talk about it, like, 'Oh, the Penn Relays, the Penn Relays!' But to actually be here, see everyone here is just wonderful and to know all that hard work you're about to do is going right here on that track", said Nefertari Bowen, a junior at Pennsauken High School. There are so many people behind you, and then I see each girl do their job before me in the race. "We did it again, and I am proud of everyone beside me here today".

The Sooners advanced two relay teams to Saturday's finals in the women's 4x200, and the men's 4x100. You just can't beat toughness. East Stroudsburg upset the field in the men's shuttle hurdles relay, winning in 58.63, and San Diego State won the women's hurdle event in 54.34.

Hutchinson and Keegan were the two most important legs. "This is my first time and especially here [Penn Relays]".

"I've been waiting for this weekend since probably November so I've been ready to go", Piccirillo said.

Nicole Hutchinson led off by running 3:21.39 in the 1,200, giving her a slight lead over Notre Dame's Danielle Aragon.

"Running on the same track as Olympians is pretty special", Kling said.

The Ducks set meet records in the women's 4x100 and sprint medley relays, briefly held the women's collegiate record in the sprint medley, and won the men's distance medley relay before a crowd of 39,598. I think anything under 63 is good.

"Penn Relays is always a fun meet".

Top engineers have brought the relays up to speed technically, and that proprietary software - specifically designed for the events - will ensure competitors clock in accurately and results will be tabulated instantly.

With only one more meet between this weekend and the Big Ten Outdoor championships on May 12-14, Penn State will be focusing on continuing its thus-far dominant season.
