Where have all the relays gone?
Thumbed through the 2014 NISCA All-America edition.
Alarmed to see only three (3) relays from Texas high schools made the top 40.
No, that's not three out of forty, fans.
That's three out of 240!
Texas h.s. relays in top forty:
Girls' 200 medley relay - 0
Girls' 200 free relay - 0
Girls' 400 free relay - 0
Boys' 200 medley relay - 0
Boys' 200 free relay - 0
Boys' 400 free relay - 3 - Klein, Brandeis, & Carroll
Go through all the 2013-14 All-America lists here.
Looking for a silver lining? Texas schools had the most Academic All-Americans. Maybe call it a stainless steel lining...
