ATHLETICS: Edwin Allen will not contest 4x800m at Penn Relays

Edwin Allen High School girls' coach Michael Dyke has confirmed that his school will not be contesting the 4x800 metres relay at the Penn Relay carnival in Pensylvania this weekend. 

This is the first in years that Edwin Allen will not be entering the event in which they have a very strong record.

Dyke says his crop of 800 metre runners is young and he does not want them to compete so early.

He says the team will be focusing on defending their 4x100 and 4x400 metres relay titles.

They are expecting a strong challenge from the St Jago High's girls' team, which will be going into the Penn Relays with the fastest times in both the 4x100 metres and 4x400 metres
