Penn Indoor Performance Lists
PHILADELPHIA - Before competing in the Heptagonal Championships, the University of Pennsylvania men's indoor track and field team will make its second trip of the year to the historic Armory Track and Field Center for the Armory Invitational Saturday night in New York City.
The meet begins with the men's long jump at 6:15 p.m. The first events on the track are the semifinals of the 60 meters which will commence at 6:05 p.m. The meet, which features Army, Brown, Columbia, Lehigh, Maryland Rutgers, and Virginia, will conclude with the 4x400 relay at 10:01 p.m.
Last year, Penn pulled out a fifth-place finish at the Armory Duals. In the 400 meters, then-freshman Tim Carey improved upon his IC4A qualifying time and moved into sole possession of 10th place in Penn's all-time record book. He broke the 49-second barrier for the first time in his collegiate career, finishing fifth with a time of 48.71.
Last week was a successful weekend for the Quakers as they traveled to Yale's Coxe Cage. Including a win from the 4x400-meter relay team, the Quakers totaled up an impressive six new IC4A qualifying marks at the Giegengack Invitational, which included four individuals - James Finucane, Matt Chylak, Jeff Weinstein and Luke Grau - and two relay teams.
The Armory Invitational is the last meet of the indoor season before the indoor postseason meets begin, starting with the Heptagonal Championships on Feb. 26-27 in New York City.
Complete results from the meet will be available on PennAthletics.com shortly after the conclusion of Saturday's events.
