The Penn Relays begin today! This week’s Throwback Thursday (TBT) is taken from the 1960 Belle Air.

“Ed Collymore, anchorman, comes from behind to take Mile Relay after getting baton from teammate Charley Stead. Time was 3:11:8 with teammates (Joe) Manion and (Jim) Blackburn’s efforts” (p. 199).

Good luck to all the athletes competing this week. Go Nova!
