The Pitt men's track and field team has been racking up some accolades this season and picked up another one recently when the men won the 4x4 relay at the Penn Relays.

The 4x4 team anchored by Brycen Spratling dominated the competition with a school record of 3:03.44, finishing ahead of second-place Texas. It was exactly 75 years since Pitt last won the 4x4 championship. In addition, the men's score of 1:22.66 in the 4x200 also was a school record.

Earlier in the year, the indoor team didn't finish in the final Top 25 USTFCCCA indoor track and field rankings. However, the strong showing at the Penn Relays vaulted the Panthers up to No. 20 in the national outdoor computer rankings. That was an improvement up from the previous week when they were No. 29. That ranking, by the way, is the highest in the entire ACC.

Still a few more events before the NCAA Championships in June (here's the full schedule), but so far, the team is having a great season and is giving the school another ranked program. The whole team deserves credit, obviously, but the relay teams in particular really deserve more attention.
