The team of Alvin Hamilton, Darian Perkerson, Jared Knight, and Alfandre Page made history in the 4x400 this weekend. This quartet teamed up to run a Virginia State record of 3:18.94 in the 4x400m relay. This time beat out Lake Braddock's 2003 time of 3:19.22.
This marks the fourth time in state history the record changed hands. The original record according to the official all-time list was Gar-Field's 3:19.58c in 1981. It was broken in 1983 by T.C.Williams running 3:19.38 and then in 2003 by Lake Braddock.
This group of Bruins ended up an All-American fourth in that race. They were joined by Colonial Forge who finished 6th in 3:20.55. That time ranks 15th all-time in the state.
Western Branch also fielded a solid 4x800m relay team that finished an All-American fifth place. Their team of Knight, Hamilton, Chase Osborne, and Kalen Whaley ran 7:49.62. That time ranks 8th all-time for Virginia and now means Western Branch ranks inside the top 10 all-time in every relay for Virginia for both genders.
