The Woodward Relays, an invitational cross-country relay race that consists of a 6 mile run with the baton passed from teammate to teammate every mile, took place on the campus of Georgetown Prep. For the first time in 50 years, runners from Magruder High School won their respective race (Senior Josh Lopez and Sophomore Colin Abrams are pictured). The Magruder duo finished nearly a minute before the second place team.
Churchill boys and girls won Woodward relays. Full results can be seen here.
The Woodward Relays began in 1973 with the first outdoor track invitational at Judge Charles W. Woodward High School in Bethesda. The following year the cross-country event was added. In 1986, upon the closure of Woodward High School, the events were moved around until they finally found a home at Walter Johnson High School. The events were held there until 2007 when they were moved to the present home at Georgetown Preparatory School.
Magruder High School invites the community to the Colonel Nation 5K, which will take place on October 15th. Additional information is coming soon.
