ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Jared Connaughton of New Haven teamed up with an International 4x100 relay team to win the University of Texas at Arlington Bobby Lane Invitational recently.
Connaughton and teammates Anson Henry of Ontario and Americans Otis McDaniel and Darvis (Doc) Patton won in a time 39.33 seconds.
All teammates were Olympians except McDaniel, who is an all-American.
The time was the third-fastest relay time in the world this year.
Connaughton also won the 200-metre event and ran away from the rest of the competitors in extreme wind conditions in a field of over 70 sprinters.
Connaughton will compete next weekend at the Texas Relays at the University of Texas in Austin.

It is one of the largest track and field meets in the United States and will include over 1,000 athletes, Connaughton will go for his third victory of the early track season.
