Caitlyn Bobb enjoyed a highly successful debut competing for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia.

The Bermudian sprinter was a member of her school’s relay team captured three medals, including two gold, and established two records at Franklin Field on Saturday.

The team set a new school record of 45.63 seconds on the way to winning the 4 x 100 relay, with Bobb carrying the baton across finish line.

They also won gold in the 4 x 400 relay in 3mins 39.51sec and set a school record time of 1:36.42 on the way to claiming silver in the 4 x 200 relay.

“This weekend was a great success,” Bobb told The Royal Gazette. “We can only give glory to God, our coaches pushing us and all of us doing our part because when it comes to relay it’s definitely not individual. All of the individuals make up the whole.”

Bobb and her team-mates also flirted with the school record in the 4 x 400 relay.

“We were very close to breaking the record, it came down to executing what we practice really,” she added.

Bobb now hopes the team can build on their latest success going forward.

“We still have things to work on and with conference; regionals and possibly NCAA nationals coming up as we aspire to continue to climb the ranks and see how far we can go this season,” the Freshman said.
