DEFENDING champions Edwin Allen High stayed on course to make it four-in-a-row in the sprint relay following the preliminary rounds of the high school girls 4x100 metres at the 2017 Penn Relays earlier today.
   The Michael Dyke-coached girls are the fastest qualifiers after winning their heat impressively in 44.76 seconds, the only sub-45 seconds on the day.

   Four other Jamaican teams are in the Championship of America final slated for tomorrow  at 1:30 p.m. (Ja time). Hydel High are the  second fastest qualifiers with 45.52 while also advancing are St Jago High, 45.93; St Catherine High, 46.19 and Vere Technical 46.30.
