PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The Georgia Tech track and field team wrapped up competition Saturday at the 120th Annual Penn Relays at historic Franklin Field. The Jackets did not compete in the men’s 100 meters or the triple jump as originally planned due to flight times and final exams.  

The Georgia Tech record-setting men’s 4x800-meter did take to the track, but a heart-breaking turn of events took the Jackets out of contention for the win.

Jeremy Greenwald kicked things off for Georgia Tech and handed the baton to Zack Fanelty. In a tight race, a three-team collision caused Fanelty to fall and the Jackets were unable to recover.  

Shawn Roberts and Brandon Lasater finished out the relay and the foursome finished sixth with a time of 7:25.44.

The Jackets are back in action May 9-10 as the team splits for the Georgia Invitational and the Virginia Challenge.
