(TORRANCE, Calif.) -- Loyola High's boys distance lineup once again won its signature event at Tuesday's Zamperini Invitational: the rarely contested 8x800-meter relay.

You read that right: 8 x 800.

Senior Andrew Bland's 1:57.1 split for the two-lap segment and three teammates (Josh Lewis, Charlie Marquardt, and Andrew Verdin) also splitting between 2:00.0 and 2:00.9 helped the Cubs win the event in 16:19.76. The eight-person lineup averaged 2:02.5 per leg.

The other notable outcome came in the boys 8x200 relay, where St. John Bosco (3:05.88) prevailed over Fountain Valley (3:08.32) in a battle between two programs with competitive dash lineups.

The annual meet is held in honor of Lou Zamperini, the Torrance High distance-running grad from the 1930s who later became an Olympian and a prisoner of war survivor, his experiences chronicled in the acclaimed novel, "Devil At My Heels".
