PHILADELPHIA - As the weather begins to improve in the Philadelphia area, its a good indicator for the start of the outdoor track and field season to begin. The University of Pennsylvania women's track and field team has its first meet this weekend in Winston-Salem, N.C., where they will compete at the Wake Forest Open on Friday and Saturday.

The Wake Forest Open begins with the hammer throw at 9:30 a.m. on Friday. The track events begin with the 100-meter hurdles at 1 p.m. Friday's field events will conclude with the pole vault at 2 p.m., and on the track, at 8 p.m. with the 10,000 meters. The final day of competition begins at 8:30 a.m. with the javelin. The finals of the 100-meter hurdles will kick off the track events. The meet is expected to conclude at 5:05 p.m. with the 4x400 relay.

Last year at this meet - also the season opener - two members of the Red and Blue and a relay team qualified for the ECAC's. Recent graduate, Leah Brogan, won the 3,000 meters. In all, 12 Quakers finished among the top eight in their respective events.

The Quakers have had two weeks off since completing the indoor season. With a young squad, Penn saw its share of successes. Five Quakers earned All-Ivy honors, seven more qualified and participated in the ECAC Championships and 14 moved up in the all-time school record books in 11 different events. Senior Jamie Massarelli capped the indoor season with aher individual ECAC title in the 500 meters.
