Updated Penn Indoor Record Book
PHILADELPHIA - It will be familiar territory on Friday night for the University of Pennsylvania men's track and field team at the Great Dane Classic as the the Quakers head to the historic Armory in New York City for the second straight week.
The Great Dane Classic is a scored meet and begins at 12:30 p.m. with the 5,000 meters. The first field event, the weight throw, begins at the same time. All events are women first, following with the men. The night concludes with the 4x400-meter relay at 7 p.m.
Last week at The Armory, behind first-place finishes from senior Philip Cawkwell, sophomore Matt Chylak and a school-record performance from freshman Maalik Reynolds, Penn placed third at the 17-team Saturday Night at The Armory meet. Reynolds, in his first collegiate indoor meet, is already the school record holder in the high jump, finishing in first place at 2.21 meters (7 feet, 3 inches). It was also an IC4A qualifying mark - tops in the IC4A this year - and the fourth-best jump in the country in 2011. Chylak also qualified for the IC4A's. He won the 1,000 meters with a career-best time of 2:27.75, while Cawkwell, senior Luke Grau, junior Michael Cunningham and freshman Connor Paez each finished in the top five of the 3,000 meters. Cawkwell claimed the victory with a time of 8:23.08, while Grau was the runner-up at 8:24.67. Both of those times qualify for the IC4A Championships.
Last year, with 16 different members of the Quakers contributing to the scoring at the Great Dane Classic, the Quakers placed fourth. Both junior Jeff Weinstein and sophomore James Finucane hit the mile finish line with IC4A qualifying times, placing only behind a meet-record finish from Albany's Sean Halpin. Weinstein topped his previous qualifying time with a finish of 4:11.07 to place second, while Finucane was right behind his teammate with a career-best effort of 4:13.32.
