Penn Performance Lists
PHILADELPHIA Led by six seniors, 19 members of the University of Pennsylvania’s men’s track and field team will be traveling to Weaver Track Stadium this weekend to compete in the IC4A Outdoor Championships in Princeton, N.J., May 15-17. Penn will be looking to add to the list of nine Quakers who have already reached NCAA Regional qualifying marks.
The 133rd edition of the IC4A championship meet which far outdates the NCAA Championships will begin at 1 p.m. on Friday. Admission on Friday is free, while Saturday and Sunday are ticketed. A two-day ticket is $16 for adults and $8 for children, seniors and students. A one-day ticket for either Saturday or Sunday is $10 for adults and $5 for children, seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased at the Southeast corner of Princeton Stadium.
Senior Max Westman is expected to compete in the decathlon and will be the only Quaker competing on Friday. The men’s 400-meter relay will start the Quakers off Saturday at 10:30 a.m. The relay, led by three seniors, Kevin Baidoo, Kevin Benjamin and Joey Brown, and sophomore Alan Hill, will look to beat their season best of 40.83 in which they qualified for the NCAA Regionals last week. Following the relay, senior Anthony Abitante will compete in the pole vault at 11 a.m. It is an event in which he has also already accomplished a Regional mark.
Bryan Scotland will participate in the 800 meters at 12:20 p.m., while the final three events for Saturday’s competition will be the 400-meter hurdles, taking off at 12:35 p.m., the 3,200-meter relay which will begin at 1:20 p.m., and the 1,600-meter relay at 1:45 p.m. Junior Jeremy Sinclair and sophomore Taylor Neason will run in the 400 hurdles. Westman will also be finishing the final half of the decathlon throughout the day Saturday.
Sunday will include finals for all the Quakers that advanced in their respective events in addition to junior John Carelli, a Regional qualifier, who will compete in the triple jump at 11 a.m.
The Quakers are entering the weekend with a strong third-place finish at last week’s Heptagonal Championships.
Westman (decathlon), sophomore Darryl Oliver (800 meters), and the 400-meter relay team were all crowned Heptagonal champions for their respective events.
