They were joined as event winners at CB West by the Javelin relay of Grant Jones and Noah Walker, the Pole Vault Relay of Eddie Eason and Jeff Beatty, and the Long Jump relay of Alex Sislo and Tre McNeill. Eason then set a new school record of 14'6.5" in PCL Meet #4 on Monday at La Salle.
Following the Penn Relays the team has their final home meet on Monday with PCL Meet #5, and then their final invitational next Friday at West Chester Henderson before entering the Championship season.
