PHILADELPHIA - Freshman Tim Carey's indoor season will continue this weekend at the IC4A Championships, but he has already had quite a successful rookie campaign, which now includes first-team All-Ivy honors. Carey earned the recognition by claiming the heptagonal championship in the 60-meter hurdles Sunday at the 2010 Heptagonal Indoor Championships in Dartmouth's Leverone Field House.

Carey becomes the first Quaker to earn first-team honors in the 60-meter hurdles since Matt Wedge won the distinction in 2003 and 2004. The Sewell, N.J., native set a new collegiate-best with his title-winning time of 8.22 in the finals. The effort also qualified him for the IC4A Championships - the third different event in which he has accomplished the feat. He is also eligible to compete at the IC4A's in the 400 meters and 500 meters.

Carey, who also reached the Heptagonal finals of the 500 meters and finished seventh, accounted for 10 of Penn's 33 team points over the two-day meet. With the help of teammate Jeremy Sinclair's third-place finish, the Quakers garnered a total 16 points from the 60-meter hurdles.

The top Ivy League performers in each individual event and the top team in each relay event earn selection to the All-Ivy League indoor track and field first team. The second Ivy finishers earn second-team honors.

Carey and several of his Quakers teammates will be heading to Boston, Mass., this weekend for the 2010 IC4A Championships. Hosted by Boston University, the meet, taking place March 6-7, is also the final chance to qualify for the NCAA Championships.
