Ryler won the Boys 400m Hurdles and ran the fastest time in the nation at 52.44.
After the race Gould said that it was a great experience overall and he had some great help from his teammates. With the wind up, he felt it a little just before the race but “Didn’t let it get to me. I just focused”. Gould is also the New York State champ.
The Penn Relays are the oldest and largest track and field competition in the United States, hosted annually since April 21, 1895 by the Univesity of Pennsylvania at Franklin Field in Philadelphia.
