From one of Delaware’s smallest school’s competing in the finals of the Championship of America, Howard’s relay team set a state record of 43.0 on cinders, winning the Championship of America at the Penn Relays in 1962. The team consisted of (in order of running) Lee Williams, Courtland Camper, Randy Brittingham and Spencer Henry and was coached by the late Quinton Sterling. To this day, no other Delaware school has won a Championship of America race. Also, to demonstrate their sprinting superiority in winning the State Championship in 1962, Howard’s sprinters ran 1,2,3 in the 100 yards (Brittingham, Henry & Williams) and 220 yards (Henry, Brittingham & Williams) when there was only one division in the state.
