All underclass 4×8 runs #3 time in Cherokee history at state Group 4 meet!!!!!!

Cherokee ran its fastest 3,200-meter relay in 10 years Saturday and the 3rd-fastest in school history.

The all under-class team of junior Conor Jacob, junior Thomas Bromley, sophomore Nick Kuenkel and sophomore Robert Poplau ran 7:50.73 to place 3rd at the state Group 4 meet at Franklin Township.

The only faster times in school history are a 7:49.34 for 5th place at the Foot Locker Nationals in Raleigh in 2000 and a 7:49.85 for 9th place at the 2012 Penn Relays.

Jacob led off with a 1:56.68, Bromley split 2:00.12, Kuenkel ran 1:57.15 and Poplau anchored in 1:56.78.

At the Meet of Champions, Cherokee will be No. 3 seed behind Westfield [7:44.79] and Ridge [7:50.12] from the Group 4 race. Cherokee could get back junior Patrick Ditmars for the M-of-C. Ditmars ran 1:55.01 last month.
