The boys 4x400m race at the Gloucester Pre-Holiday Invitational came down to the final leg between Lakeland, Virginia, and Loudoun Valley, Virginia. In the final leg of the race, there were three different lead changes. Lakeland had the lead going into the final handoff, then Loudoun Valley's Sam Affolder took the lead back for 100m, and then Lakeland' Deondre Little closed out the race hard and took home the win with a final time of 3:34.37.
Although Lakeland took the win, Loudoun Valley was just behind them in 3:34.62. Affolder, Loudoun Valley's anchor leg, split 51 seconds after running a 4:11 in the 1,600m and 2:30 in the 1K earlier that day. Affolder is also just coming off the team win at Nike Cross Nationals and running a 14:58.10 5K only a few weeks ago at the Nike Cross Nationals South Regional.
