Clemson Wins 4×200 Meter Relay Championship as Tigers Excel on Friday at Penn Relays

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — The second day of the 2022 Penn Relays proved extraordinary for the Clemson track and field program, as several Tigers posted impressive marks, including the 4×200 meter relay group consisting of Fabian Hewitt, Guinove Joanus, Wanya McCoy and Cameron Rose that brought home the championship in the event. This marks the Tigers’ tenth all-time wheel won at the Penn Relays, with the last coming in 2018 when the women’s sprint medley group took it home.

At least one Tiger advanced to Saturday’s finals in all but one event that Clemson participated in and had prelims take place on Friday. This sets up for a thrilling final day in Philadelphia with the chance for even more Clemson athletes to take home championships.

“This was a very good day,” said Program Director Mark Elliott. “Whenever you can win a championship at the Penn relays, that’s pretty special, especially with making finals in so many events. Just a very good day, and congratulations to our men’s 4×200, as they did a great job.”


  • The men’s 4×200 relay won a fabled wagon wheel at the Penn Relays for their performance in the event. 1:22.91 was best and enough to bring home the hardware.
