PHILADELPHIA - The Penn men's track team placed fourth overall with 94.5 points at this weekend's 2006 Heptagonal Championship, held at Franklin Field.

Senior Courtney Jaworski won his third consecutive championship in the 800-meter run, becoming just the third three-time winner in the 72-year history of the event at Heps.

"Courtney is one of the best athletes ever to walk through here," said Penn head coach Charlie Powell. "Hopefully he'll be an All-American once again."

Sophomore Kyle Calvo set a meet record, winning the decathlon with a score of 7,202 points to break the previous mark of 7,043 set in 2004 by Dartmouth's Andrew Hall.

David Whitehurst won the 110-meter hurdles title with a time of 14:20, which is the fastest at the Heps Championship since 1986 and ties him for the sixth-fastest time ever in the meet.

Kevin Benjamin placed second in the 200 with a 21.45, while Joey Brown placed third with a 10.85 in the 100-meter dash.

The 4x100 relay team of Benjamin, Joel Miller, Peter Cochran and Brown ran a 41.01, the ninth-fastest time Heps history, to place second.
