Henry girls take 2nd at Penn Relays

The 4 x 100 realy team of Nadiera Hodge, Amber Hearns, Alisa Fornwald, and Torey Cardwell took second place, April 27, in the Philadelphia Girls 4 x 100 at the Penn Relays.

Begun in 1985, the Penn Relays claims to be the oldest, and largest, track and field event in the world for high school and college athletes. According to the relays' site:

"Through 112 editions of the meet, more athletes have run at the Penn Relays than at any single meet in the world. More spectators have watched the meet than any in the world except the Olympics and World Championships."

Outside the formal school events, during the 1-mile Kids Fun Run prelude to the Penn Relays, on April 22, one Henry third grader blew away the field of runners, up to 13 years old, by more than 30 seconds!
