Before the boys’ 4x100 meter relay race Thursday night, a Sidwell Friends athlete ran to the starting line at Dunbar High to inform his school’s relay team of the race’s stakes.

Sidwell Friends trailed St. John’s in the team standings at the District of Columbia State Athletic Association outdoor track and field championships, but a win in the 4x100 would give the Quakers an edge.

Sidwell Friends won the race with a time of 44.08, all but sealing the Quakers’ DCSAA boys’ championship in Northwest Washington. St. John’s finished eight points behind Sidwell Friends.
