Panhandle made the first exchange followed closely by Haskell. Panhandle never slowed down on the second leg and maintained their lead. Panhandle handed off first with Haskell right behind and Shiner staying in the mix in 3rd place. 

Panhandle and Haskell neck and neck after the 3rd exchange both teams wanting this title bad. Panhandle handed off first with Haskell in second a repeat of last year. Were we in a time loop or what?

It was six teams fighting it our for third down the backstretch as Panhandle and Haskell had already wrapped up their places. Panhandle crossed first with a time of 3:55.79,  Haskell was right behind for the silver with a time 4:00.37, and Goldthwaite captured the bronze with a time of 4:03.78.

Panhandle captured a new conference 2A Record this year which they set last year and kept their dominance alive.
