The University of Pennsylvania Relay Carnival, familiarly known as the Penn Relays, began in 1895 as a way to provide the best competition for the greatest number of participants of all levels, ages and abilities.

This prestigious meet has been home to many record-breaking runs. St. John’s Prep was represented by the girls’ 1,600 meter relay team of Nora Bernard, Naika Branch, Clarissa Connor and Valerie Mellon. The team placed first with a time of 4:07.29, an 8 second improvement over their best time of the year.

The boys’ 3,200 meter relay team of Martelly Etienne, Eric Zorilla, Chris Brantley and Sean Lowe qualified for this elite race, the first time a St. John’s Prep team has qualified since 1995. The boys’ relay posted a time of 8:13.4, which was the fastest time of all the CHSAA teams in the race.
