PHILADELPHIA - Freshman Candace Taylor was named the ECAC South Rookie of the Week on Wednesday night by the conference office.

Taylor earned an outdoor victory for the second time in as many meets on Saturday at the Maryland Invitational. The Westbury, N.Y., won the 200 meters at home in the season-opening Philadelphia College Classic, and earned a win in the 400 meters this week with a time of 56.78 - just outside Penn's all-time top 10 in the event.

This week Taylor and the Quakers will cover both the East Coast and the West Coast. Some Quakers will head to the Stanford Invite in Palo Alto, Calif., while others will compete at teh Sam Howell Invitational in Princeton, N.J. There will also be several Penn representatives at the Florida Relays in Gainsville.
