The Penn State men's 4x800 made a big splash on Saturday night, setting a facility record, a Millrose Games record, and tying the Penn State record for the event, with at time of 7:21.37.
In the Nittany Lions’ only event of the week, the foursome came out blazing. Za’Von Watkins, Brannon Kidder, Ricky West, and Casimir Loxsom came out in that order on their way to dominating the rest of the field.
In a season where they have set a collegiate record in the men’s 4x200 relay, the team is looking to always live up to high expectations.
Loxsom, one of two seniors in the group, said on Thursday that the team had eyes on “collegiate record of 7:17.45,” and while they didn’t come up exactly that fast, they took home first.
The Nittany Lions will now have six days off until next week’s Big Ten Championships in Geneva, Ohio.
