Maryland track and field competed at the Penn Relays last weekend, and two relay teams set school records.
The Terps’ women’s 4x800-meter relay team, composed of Kami Joi Hickson, Anna Coffin, Mackenzie Morgan and Michaela Bracken —completed the event in 8:42.96 —breaking the previous school record of 8:44.24, set in 2013. That mark was also set at the Penn Relays.
The men’s 4x800-meter relay team also set a school record, crossing the finish line with a time of 7:31.01. That time, ran by Solomon Lawrence, Eric Albright, Maxwell Myers and Chase McGeehan, was just over a second faster than the record the same quartet of runners set at the Penn Relays in 2022.
“Penn Relays is a historic weekend with a lot of history for Maryland track,” head coach Andrew Valmon said in a statement. “We were proud to continue this tradition and be well represented from the relays to the field events over the past three days of competition.”
Maryland hosts the Kehoe Twilight Meet this upcoming weekend, the team’s final competition before the Big Ten, NCAA and USATF championships.
