Booker T. boys run season’s fastest 400-meter relay in nation

 

Special to The Miami Herald

The Booker T. Washington 400-meter relay squad, with a time of 41.09, ran the fastest time in the country this season at the Sam Burley Invitational at Miami Southridge High on Saturday.

Nigel Patten, who wasn’t even supposed to run the relay but was inserted into the lineup because usual first-leg runner Lamar Parker sustained a hamstring injury, gave Booker T. the early lead.

Deltron Hopkins and Krondis Larry maintained the Tornado lead through the second and third legs, and Nicholas Norris sprinted as hard as he could through the finish line.

“I just knew I couldn’t be the downfall in this relay,” Norris said. “They worked so hard to bring it all the way through, I knew I couldn’t let them down — finish through and let’s get the record.”

Despite the record-setting day for the Tornadoes, Belen finished first in team standings, besting Booker T. 71-53 in boys’ competition.

On the girls side, St. Thomas Aquinas won with a team score of 118.
