The Villanova men went slowest to fastest to grab the men’s 4 x 800 title at the 2014 Penn Relays today in 7:16.58- 1:51.80 for Josh Lampron, 1:49.45 for Dusty Solis, 1:48.77 for Jordan Williamsz, and 1:46.58 for Samuel Ellison.

Williamsz’s third leg was key as he ended up breaking things open and giving Ellison a comfortable lead. Defending champs Penn State got a nice solid anchor leg from Brannon Kidder (1:46.96) but there was no way he was going to make up more than 2 seconds when Eillison was running so well.

This one wasn't ever in doubt on the last leg for Samuel Ellison

This one wasn’t ever in doubt on the last leg for Samuel Ellison

Penn state, who was without Robbie Creese and Cas Loxsom from last year’s winning team, only got a 1:53.35 on the opening leg which proved to be fatal for them. Za’Von Watkins ran a strong 1:49.97 to get them back into it on leg two but they just had too much work to do on the anchor.
