On Tuesday, March 14th, 2017, The Bolles School hosted the annual Bolles Relay Track Meet. It was a record breaking day for the Lady Bulldogs. The Bolles girls 4×1600 relay team ran the fastest time in FHSAA history, while the 4×200 relay team broke a Bolles record.

The school record breaking relay team consists of Monet Bowen ‘18, Aunikah King ‘18, Caitlin Collier ‘18, and Ariela Allen ‘19. The sprinters ran the relay in 1:44. The previous record was 1:46, and was held by the exact same team this season!

Allen replaced the injured Nia Guine ‘18, who was on the relay team before her injury. Guine said, “I was so proud of my teammates for breaking the record when the weather was working against them.”

The 4×1600 relay team consists of Caitlin Collier ’18, Rachel Shapiro ’18, Ally Hajda ’17, and Katherine Kunz ‘21. The team ran the entire relay in 20:34.11.

The previous state record was 20:56:31.   The Bulldog girls shattered this record by a whopping 22 seconds, even running against very strong winds! Not only did they shatter their record, but they are one of 3 teams to break a 21 minute relay.

The Lady Bulldogs look to finish their regular season on a strong note, and are getting ready to chase another state title.
