ORU Track and Field Sends World\'s Best to Penn Relays

Tulsa, Okla. – The Oral Roberts University\'s 4x800 meter relay team, Texas Relays winner in 7:17.02, the best time for that event in the world, is making a rare appearance at the Penn Relays, which take place April 25-29 at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. That winning performance at Texas made them the first college team under 7:20 in two seasons.

The Golden Eagles are led by 1:46 halfmiler Shaun Smith and 1:47 runner Prince Mumba. Teammates James Wanjiku and Adrian Foster are also major contributors to the squad, as evidenced by their Texas Relays time that put them on top of the world rankings. The squad is also a major reason that the men\'s team as a whole currently ranks #18 in the nation, according to TrackWire\'s top 25 rankings.

The 4x800 meter relay will run at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, April 29. All times are local.
