Reynolds, Carey Earn Indoor All-Ivy Accolades

Men's 2011 Indoor All-Ivy Teams

PHILADELPHIA - Freshman Maalik Reynolds (first team) and sophomore Tim Carey (second team) each earned All-Ivy honors for the University of Pennsylvania men's track and field team at the 2011 Indoor Heptagonal Championships on Sunday at the historic Armory in New York City.

Reynolds became the first Quaker to claim the indoor high jump title since David Recthweg in 1996. He needed just three jumps to do it. He surpassed the bar at 2.01 meters on his first try and on his second attempt at 2.10 meters (6 feet, 10.75 inches), he sealed the win in his first Heptagonal meet. The Atlanta, Ga., native holds the school record in the event at 2.21 meters (7-03 ft.).

Carey earned his third career All-Ivy accolade and his second in the indoor 60-meter hurdles. The Sewell, N.J., native won the Heps title in the event as a freshman in 2010 and was the runner-up on Sunday. He posted the best time of his career (8.19) and improved upon his fifth-place standing in the Penn record books.

The top Ivy League performers in each individual event and the top team in each relay event earn selection to the All-Ivy League indoor track and field first team. The second Ivy finishers earn second-team honors.

Reynolds and Carey combined for 18 of Penn's 32 points at the meet and are among the Penn qualifiers for the IC4A Championships on Saturday and Sunday in Boston, Mass.
