April 25, 2009
PHILADELPHIA -- The Texas 4x800-meter relay team of seniors Tevan Everett, Tevas Everett, Jacob Hernandez and Kyle Miller set a school record in defending their Penn Relays title on Saturday. The group clocked a 7:16.33 to break the 28-year-old mark of 7:18.10, which was set by Larry Johnson, Chris Bucknall, George Collins and Owen Hamilton in 1981, by almost two seconds.
Also on the track, the 4x400-meter relay team of junior Jonathan Collins, sophomores Danzell Fortson and Andre Thomas and freshman Dereck Dreyer placed fourth in the college division with a time of 3:09.49, while freshman Trevante Rhodes clocked a 10.66 to finish seventh in the championship 100 meters.
In the field, sophomore Maston Wallace finished second in the championship pole vault with a 5.30m (17-4.50) clearance. It was the same height as the winner, but Wallace fell to second due to misses.
