Kingston College will in fact feature in the Championship of America 4x400m relay final at the Penn Relays at the University of Pennsylvania's Franklin Field. 

KC appeared to have missed out on a top nine spot after St Joseph Prep, posted 3:15.56, which bettered KC's pedestrian heat-winning 3:17.67 time, which had them precariously placed in the ninth and final qualifying spot.

However, given that St Joseph Prep competed in the Philadelphia Catholic section, their time did not affect the classifications for the Championship of America final.

Eight Jamaican teams, led by defending champions Calabar, which had the fastest time of 3:10.89 despite running without Christopher Taylor and Anthony Carpenter, will feature in the final.

The other Jamaican teams to advance are Holmwood Technical 3:14.00, Jamaica College 3:15.77, Rhodes Hall 3:16.29, Petersfield 3:15.13 and Edwin Allen 3:25.70.

The final is scheduled for 4:20 p.m. (Jamaica time).
