Boys Varsity Track · Purcell Marian Great Sports Moments: 2017 4×200 Boys Track Relay State Champions


2017 State Champs – 4×200 Relay Team

The 2017 state champion relay team consisted of Caleb England, Marquize Johnson, Nylan Mosley, and Quamonte Richardson, Devonta Rice, and Michael Little.  The Cavaliers made the championship leap after a bronze finish in the 4×200 in 2016 gave them the motivation to come back and finish what they started.  As the 2017 regular season closed, the Cavaliers took notice at the prestigious Anderson Invitational.  The  Cavalier relay teams finished first in the 4×100 Relay and 2nd in the 4×200 relay.  At the GCL meet, the Cavaliers started a string of seven straight unbeaten races until it ended with a state title and school-record time of 1:29.40.  The 2017 Cavaliers were district champions, regional champions as well as state champions.  The Cavaliers were also silver medalists in the 4×100 Relay with a school-record time of 43.01.  In the 91 year history of Purcell Marian, no relay team has been faster, before or after.
