PHILADELPHIA - There will be 18 athletes representing the red and blue striped uniforms of the University of Pennsylvania men's track and field team at the IC4A Championship meet on Saturday and Sunday inside the Boston University Track and Tennis Center in Boston, Mass.
Penn's first event is at noon on Saturday when senior James Foreman will compete in the pole vault. The first day concludes with the 4x400-meter relay, another event featuring the Quakers, at 4:50 p.m. Track events begin at 12:15 p.m., on the final day of competition, with the 2011 IC4A team champion crowned at 3 p.m.
Senior captain Alan Hill and sophomore Tim Carey will hit the track first for the Quakers on Saturday. Hill will compete at 1 p.m., in the 60 meters and Carey will start at 1:20 p.m., in the 60-meter hurdles. Junior James Finucane is set to compete in the mile at 1:40 p.m., and junior Brian Rosenthal will run in the 400 meters at 2 p.m.
Carey and sophomore Trevor Cordivari are both eligible for the 500 meters at 2:50 p.m. Twenty minutes later, sophomore Matt Chylak and junior Michael Cunningham are set to run in the 1,000 meters. That is followed by senior Luke Grau and freshman Conner Paez in the 3,000 meters. The two relay teams will conclude the first day for the Quakers.
The remaining event finals will take place on Sunday with freshman Maalik Reynolds eligible to compete in the high jump at noon.
The Red and Blue are coming off of a fifth-place finish at the 2011 Indoor Heptagonals where Reynolds won the Heps title in the high jump and Carey took home All-Ivy honors as the runner-up in the 60-meter hurdles. Reynolds cleared the bar on his first attempt at 2.01 meters, then with just one other competitor remaining, he passed the bar at 2.10 meters (6 feet, 10.75 inches) on his second try to win the title and earn first-team All-Ivy status. Carey finished with a career-best time of 8.19, just nine-hundreths of a second behind the winner.
Last year at the IC4A's, both the distance medley relay and the 4x800 team scored as Penn finished in a tie for 33rd of the 52 teams that scored. The 4x800 relay team tied a 33-year-old school record. The Red and Blue finished in 7:30.57 and was just behindPenn'sindoor 4x800 record of 7:30.3 set in 1977. But when you factor in the 0.27 hand-timed conversion, the Quakers matched their counterparts from nearly four decades earlier.
Complete results from the meet will be available on PennAthletics.com shortly after the conclusion of Sunday's events.
