Fourth Annual Co-Ed Relays Run at Wildcat Stadium

The fourth annual Coventry Lions Club Co-Ed  Relay Invitational took place Tuesday, May 25th.  Over 150 athletes competed in sixteen different relay races and events.

The Co-Ed Relays is a rarity among Invitational Meets in that it allows male and female competitors to participate together, with one another, instead of the traditional separate events for boys and girls.  In the field events, a boy and a girl compete and add their scores together to determine place finishes.  In track events, two boys and two girls combine to create the traditional four person relay.  There is also a non-traditional relay where six competitors run 100 meters each in a crescendo relay.  Each weight class is represented by a boy and girl runner, and the race progresses with each weight class getting larger (read upper weight class) from 90 lb. to 120 lb.

This year, just three teams competed, albeit three of the larger teams in the area. Owen J. Roberts played host to Arcola and Lionville.

Arcola Middle School set the tone of the day by breaking records in the first three events of the meet, the distance medley and the 105 lb. and open shuttle hurdles.  Five more meet records were established before the meet ended; three more from Arcola and one each from Lionville and Owen J. Roberts.
