One aspect of Cross Country I like more than Track and Field is the team excitement from both the spectators and students. The one event that brings that all together in Track and Field are the relay events.  This is where the dominance of certain programs really shows up in terms of coaching and the overall track culture of certain schools. The 6A and 5A exemplify this theory, as witnessed over the weekend.  

In the distance relays, the Lone Peak girls and the Herriman boys dominated the 4x800m races. The Lone Peak girls lived up to expectations, finishing with a scorching time of 9:11.91, a dominant lead of over  14 seconds ahead of the second-place Skyridge team. Meanwhile, the Herriman boys showcased their unrivaled prowess, crossing the finish line with an overall time of 7:39, triumphing over both Lone Peak and Skyridge.

The 4x400 meter relay for girls witnessed an epic photo finish, with the American Fork team seizing victory at the finish line, clocking in at 3:52.72. The intensity of this race is best experienced by watching the video footage you can find on Mile Split. In the boys' 4x400 meter relay, Corner Canyon sped to victory, leaving Lone Peak and Herriman trailing in their wake.

The 4x200 meter relay saw Bingham emerge victorious,  edging out Corner Canyon by a mere second, while American Fork secured a respectable third place. In the boys' 4x200 meter relay, Corner Canyon showcased their speed once again, beating out American Fork and Lone Peak.

Breaking the earlier pattern of favorites dominating, the 4x4100 meter relays witnessed Fremont taking the top spot with a razor-sharp time of 47.83 seconds. Bingham and Corner Canyon chased closely, claiming second and third place, respectively. In the boys' 4x100m final, Corner Canyon solidified its dominance, edging out Syracuse and American Fork with an impressive time of 41.92 seconds.

In the 5A, A was the 4x800m races, where Mountain View easily won the girls' category, crossing the finish line in 9:21. Park City and Springville fought hard but ultimately fell short against Mountain View who has one of the strongest girls distance programs in 5A.
