Logan had to beat relays juggernaut Long Beach Wilson (dropped baton, (1:46.48) head-on in its heat! Yikes! United Stars TC (PA) blazes to 1:42.92. The final will smoke!!!

On the boys' side, Transit Tech of New York squandered a blistering pace with a botched anchor-leg exchange and was disqualified (DATAC of Denver was best in 1:31.66).
