Wright Moves

Tennessee miler and half-miler Phoebe Wright now has six of the gold watches that Penn Relays winners receive. Wright (below), a senior with a 3.96 GPA, helped the Lady Vols complete a double triple: two straight years winning the 4 × 1,500, 4 × 800 and distance-medley relays.... The vaunted Oregon men's team returned to Penn for the first time since 2007 and won the 4 × mile and distance-medley relays, which was anchored by Andrew Wheating's 3:59.84 mile. Wheating, a senior, was an '08 U.S. Olympian in the 800 meters.... Virginia freshman Robby Andrews, who held off Wheating in a furious anchor-leg kick in the 4 × 800, has won every race of his young college career but one, the 800 in the ACC outdoor championships.
