2009 Indoor Performance List
PHILADELPHIA - After impressive individual performances at the 2009 Heptagonal Indoor Championship in Cambridge, Mass, on Feb. 28-March 1, juniors Anna Aagenes and Hannah Cope have earned Indoor All-Ivy second-team honors. Aagenes garnered her distinction in the 800 meters, and Cope in the 60-meter hurdles, as the University of Pennsylvania women’s track and field team was well-represented among the honorees.
The top Ivy League performers in each individual event and the top team in each relay event earn selection to the All-Ivy League track and field first team. The second Ivy finishers earn second team honors.
Aagenes ran a personal-best time of 2:08.80 in the 800 meters at Heptagonals, a feat that reached the NCAA provisional qualifying benchmark and now ranks second-all time in the event at Penn. The junior from Doylestown, Pa., will have once more chance to qualify outright for a place in the NCAA field at the ECAC Championships this weekend.
Meanwhile, Cope was the runner-up in the 60-meter hurdles. After setting a career-best mark in the semi-finals at 8.94, she broke that time less than 24 hours later in the finals. Her second-place time of 8.84 qualifies her for the ECAC Championships and places the Mentor, Ohio, native in third all-time at Penn in the event.
Aagenes, Cope and the rest of the Quakers squad next head to the ECAC Championships March 7-8 in Boston, Mass. The Red and Blue overall have posted ECAC qualifying times in 14 different events.
