Meet Homepage

PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania men’s indoor track and field team will participate in its final tune-up before the 2012 Indoor Heptagonal Championships, heading back to the historic Armory Track & Field Center in New York City on Saturday for the Millrose Collegiate Invitational.

The meet begins at 9 a.m. with the women’s shot put and pole vault. Then, the men’s and women’s long jump will follow at 9:30 a.m. The first track events will start at 10 a.m., with the semifinals of the women’s 60-meter dash immediately followed by the men’s. The Millrose Collegiate Invitational concludes with the men’s 4x400-meter relay at 1:44 p.m.

Following this meet, the Quakers have one weekend off to prepare for the 2012 Indoor Heptagonal Championships in Ithaca, N.Y., Feb. 25-26.

Last weekend, the Quakers posted three wins at the Giegengack Invitational in New Haven. Seniors Brian Fulton and Brian Rosenthal as well as sophomore Maalik Reynolds each won their respective events. Fulton won the 800 meters with a time of 1:53.16, about a full second ahead of the rest of the 35-man field. Rosenthal crossed in first place in the 400 meters with a season-best time of 49.38 and his first individual victory of the season. Reynolds won the high jump for the fourth time in four meets this year, with his winning jump of 2.19 meters (7 feet, 2 1/4 inches).

In their final tune-up prior to indoor Heps last year, Penn finished fifth out of 13 teams at the Armory Invitational, which was highlighted by Reynolds’ victory in the high jump. He was one of three to clear the bar at 2.08 meters (6 feet, 9 3/4 inches) and eventually won the tiebreaker with just two misses to capture the event title.

Complete results from the Millrose Collegiate Invitational will be available on shortly after the conclusion of Saturday's events.
