Penn Relays Meet Notes

Head coach Curtis Frye is wearing the “yellow hat” this weekend, a prestigious honor for serving as the honorary college women’s referee. He is one of only five honorary referees at the Penn Relays. “The yellow hat is representative of the meet referee, the person who overturns or upholds officials’ rulings,” said Frye. “For college coaches, it’s an honorary award. It goes to the coach who has the most wins who hasn’t been awarded the honor before. In 100 years, only 100 other people have been given such an honor and I am proud to have been selected.”

“I used to think that the honor was just who was the favorite coach, but I found out this week that it is an earned honor. I’ve always seen LSU, Texas, and Florida coaches wear the hat in years past, but this year I found out it was awarded another way.”
