The State College 4x800-meter relay team of Chris Golembeski, Kyle Adams, Mason Post and Will Cather are the Centre Daily Times’ Male Athletes of the Week.
The quartet broke a longstanding school record on the way to winning the gold medal at the PIAA Class AAA Track & Field Championships on Saturday at Shippensburg University.
Golembeski led off the relay, followed by Adams, Post and Cather. In third place to start the final leg, Cather pulled away over the final two laps to lead the Little Lions to a 1.25-second victory.
Their time of 7 minutes, 41.99 seconds broke the school record of 7:42.2, which stood since the Penn Relays in 1969.
