Academy of Speed, from Fullerton, Calif., Win Boys’ 4×200-Meter Relay at 2018 Simplot Games
Pocatello, Idaho – The Academy of Speed boys’ relay team from Fullerton, Calif., won the boys’ 4×200- meter relay with a time of 1:28.40 at the 2018 Simplot Games.
Nolan Crespo, junior, led the relay, followed by Chris Hill, junior, Billy Bowens, senior, and anchor Caleb Roberson, junior. The first time this team ran together was during Simplot Games’ preliminary heats on Friday.
“We are a technical team,” Bowens said. “We focus on our speed and the techniques that our coaches are teaching us.”
The three juniors plan on returning to the 2019 Simplot Games. Bowens will be attending Boise State University on a football scholarship after graduating.
More than 2,200 athletes will come from across the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to participate in the 40th annual Simplot Games. Simplot Games remains the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. Sponsored by the J.R. Simplot Company since 1979, the Simplot Games are held at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena in Pocatello, Idaho.
