Men's Track and Field Successful at Penn Quad


PHILADELPHIA--Penn saw a number of top finishes from the team. Joey Brown took first in the 100m with a time of 10.95. He came in just behind teammate Grafton Ifill in the 200m dash with a time of 21.95. Ifill took first with a time of 21.92.

Junior Time Kaijala blew the competition away with a time of 3:49.30 in the 1500m run. Running a smart race, Kaijala waited in the middle of the pack until the last lap when he kicked ahead of three Villanova runners to win by near two whole seconds.

The Quakers used the distance events as a training run with just one Villanova runner joining them in the 3000m run. Ian Foley brought in the top time in the 3000m with a time of 8:28.22. In the 10,000m run, Michael LaQuaglia (31:39.1) edged Brian Trembley (31:41.9) for the top spot.

In the 110m hurdles, Michael Bale took first with a time of 15.41.

Penn’s “A” team was clocked at 41.40 in the 4x100m relay for first.

In the field, Anthony Abitante cleared 4.90m in the pole vault. Andrew McMillen marked 44.45m in the discus to win the event, while Stephen Bachman took second with 44.17m.

The Quakers head to Princeton, N.J., for the Larry Ellis Invitational, April 20-21.
