Last week, the Quakers placed seventh at the 2011 Indoor Heptagonal Championships in New York City. Piper earned All-Ivy honors as the runner-up with the fastest time in Penn history in the 60-meter hurdles. Her effort of 8.64 topped the old school record of 8.75 - set by Piper on Saturday, which beat out Jeanette Curtis' time of 8.78 from 2006. Piper also placed fourth in the 60 meters with a career-best time of 7.69. That mark is the third-best time in school history and earned the Quakers four more points.
Last season at the ECAC's senior Jamie Massarelli won the ECAC title in the 500 meters with the second-fastest time in school history. Of the 52 teams that were able to score at the meet, Penn finished 16th with 17.75 points. All four Quakers that competed on the final day of competition, as well as the 4x800 relay team, scored. It was the best team finish for Penn at the indoor ECAC Championships since the Red and Blue finished ninth in 2006.
