The 2017 staging of the Penn Relays was a rather outstanding outing for the St. Catherine based G.C. Foster College as the male team created history with their performance. The team was poised towards defending their Championship of America 4x100 m title and that they did by outrunning auburn university in a time of 38.94 seconds. The sprint medley team did justice to the track by copping the title with an outstanding nail biting finish on the 800 m leg ran by Daniel 'Birdie' Glave.
G.C. Foster College's outstanding performance has now etched them in the history of Jamaica's track and field as the first institution in the country to have captured two Championship of America titles in the same year at this prestigious relay carnival.
