Henry is looking forward to seeing his quarter-milers in action.
“This will be a very competitive weekend for the men’s 4x400m,” he revealed. “We’ll put one of our best groups on the track and we still have some people out. On the women’s side, the quarter-milers will run the open 400m.
“The relay ran fast last weekend. The relay we put on the track this weekend may not reflect our absolute best group right now, but we will put together a competitive women’s relay.”
