It's Never Too Early To Think About The Penn Relays!

Both the Men and Women got off to a good start at the B1G Ten Indoor Track and Field Championships on the first day.

But what struck my eye was Track Historian and Friend of the Group (and possible future star of Hoarding: Buried Alive!) Mike Fanelli's photo post on Facebook yesterday.  It shows PSU's winning 4 x Mile squad at the 1926 Penn Relays.  I have set my Interns off on a quest to learn more, but they seem to be packing for Spring Break already...

Our Interns have come through!   Now they are asking for a ride to the Airport, in addition to 2 weeks off in Mexico...

1926 4 x Mile: 18 minutes 14 seconds and THREE-FIFTH...Fouracre, Reis, Barclay, Stewart!!!

One diligent Intern did find out that 1926 was the first year that the Shuttle Hurdles were contested at the Penn Relays, at the advice of the visiting teams from Oxford and Cambridge.  The event was won that first year by Moore of Penn State!  And the Interns dug this up too:  1926 480y Shuttle Hurdles...1:05.00...Eggers, Sharp, Lereh, Moore. Now they want lunch money before their flight...

There seems to be no end of the riches that are to be found in Mike Fanelli's garage.  And not a one of us is complaining.  Except maybe his lovely Nittany Lion wife...
