Men's Performance List | Men's IC4A Qualifiers | Updated Outdoor Record Book

PHILADELPHIA – After a strong showing at the George Mason Spring Invitational on April 9, the University of Pennsylvania men’s track and field team heads to Princeton, N.J., to participate in the Larry Ellis Invitational this weekend. This will be the Quakers’ final meet before the 117th running of the Penn Relays beginning Thursday, April 28th.

Beginning Friday, the two-day meet at Weaver Stadium opens with the hammer event at 3 p.m., followed by the discus at 5:30 p.m. Friday’s running events start at 6:15 p.m., with the steeplechase. Saturday’s events begin with the shot put at noon. The track events open with the 4x100-meter relay at 12:10 p.m. The day’s events will close with the 4x400-relay at 6 p.m.

Two weeks ago, Luke Grau’s career-best 14:18.62 time in the 5,000 meters placed him ninth in the Penn record books, while also qualifying him for the IC4A Championships. Maalik Reynolds won the high jump for a third straight week, and for the third straight week he surpassed seven feet.

Last year at the cold and windy Larry Ellis Invitational, Tim Carey won the 400-meter hurdles. Carey was a decisive winner. He pulled away from the competition, finishing in 52.02. Senior Jeremy Sinclair finished fifth in the event with his time of 54.28. In the 800 meters, sophomore Brian Fulton was third with his finish of 1:54.73.

A full recap and complete results of the Larry Ellis Invitational can be found at shortly after the conclusion of the meet. Some tickets are still available here for the 117th running of the Penn Relays, the world's oldest and largest relay carnival, April 28-30.
