The Last Track to Philly Invitational was conceived in 2007 after the opening of the field house at Georgetown Prep. Since then it has served as one of the final annual invitationals of the Maryland indoor season, eschewing open events (save for the mile and 3200, as well as field events) for relays like the sprint and distance medley relays and shuttle hurdle relays.
In 2012, Gilman senior Will Meadows was a tough-luck runner up in the invitational mile, behind fellow senior Joey Chapin of Georgetown Prep. His 4:25 time is the third-fastest in meet history. Meadows also anchored the Greyhound's distance medley relay to what was then a meet-record time of 10:34. The mark was only broken at last year's meet by Archbishop Spalding.
