PHILADELPHIA - Their celebration was years in the making. After all, Duke's women runners had been chasing archrival North Carolina forever. Or so it seemed. But everything turned around yesterday at the 111th running of the Penn Relays. With 25,183 Franklin Field fans focusing on every stride of the women's distance medley Championship of America final, the Blue Devils finally crashed through to a historic triumph. It took Meghan Leon, Lindsay Owen, Lauren Matic and anchor runner Shannon Rowbury 11 minutes, 10.18 seconds to turn the sands of time.

If there's a two-word theme to describe what took place at the 16th annual Meade Stampede last night, it would be "gold rush." Like the pioneers who raided the West Coast in the 19th century, Oakland Mills, Arundel, Broadneck and Westminster grabbed at least three gold medals at the 16-team invitational at Meade High. No team scores were recorded. The top-ranked Oakland Mills boys squad captured five of the nine track events, and the girls team had winners in three of six field events.

Excuse Ryan Audy if he wanted to take a nap at yesterday's Morgan State Invitational. The Mount St. Joseph junior had his prom Friday evening and didn't get home until 2 a.m. yesterday. The lack of rest didn't affect Audy's performance, as he won the boys' 1,600-meter competition in a meet record time of 4 minutes, 38.92 seconds. Disappointed by his seeding, Audy bested last year's record-winning 4:39.21. "With the wind conditions and [the fact that] we had prom last night, I was happy with what I did," said Audy, working off six hours of sleep.
