Carey Claims Victory for Men's Track and Field


PRINCETON, N.J. - Freshman Tim Carey won the 400-meter hurdles for the University of Pennsylvania men's outdoor track and field team at the Larry Ellis Invitational on a cold and windy Saturday at Princeton's Weaver Stadium.

The Quakers faced the worst conditions of the year and many were pulled from their events to avoid injury. Penn has two of its most important meets of the year coming up in the Penn Relays and Heptagonal Championships. The 116th running of the Penn Relays begins on Thursday and the following meet is for the Ivy League title.

Carey was a decisive winner in the 400-meter hurdles. He pulled away from the competition, finishing in 52.02. Senior Jeremy Sinclair finished fifth in the event with his time of 54.28. Carey was also eighth in the 100 meters. He finished in 14.75.

Sophomore Robert Dugger was third in the 1,500 meters. He finished just more than a second behind the leader with his time of 3:57.78.

In the 800 meters, sophomore Brian Fulton was third with his finish of 1:54.73. He finished behind two runners from Army and was just a little more than a second off the lead.

The Quakers won't have much time to rest. The 116th running of the Penn Relays begins on Tuesday with the decathlon.
