PHILADELPHIA – After a competitive weekend at the Penn State National, the University of Pennsylvania women's indoor track and field team will face an even more daunting field this weekend at the New Balance Invitational in New York City. Representatives from more than 200 schools will meet at The Armory, making this the largest indoor meet in the country.

There will be two long days of track and field as the action begins at 11 a.m. on Friday with the 3,000 meters and continues until the 5,000 meters set to begin at 9 p.m. Saturday begins with sections of the 3,000 at 9:20 a.m. with the first field event, the weight throw, beginning at the same time. The meet is scheduled to conclude with the 4x400 relay at 5:47 p.m. For a full schedule, click here.

Teams at the meet this week include traditional track and field powerhouses Texas, LSU, Villanova, UCLA, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee and South Carolina as well as many others. The Ivy League will also be represented by Columbia and Princeton.

The Red and Blue are coming off of a meet in State College that saw the Quakers claim victory in the pole vault, and add three more individuals and two relay teams to their ECAC qualifying list. Senior Yelizaveta Lozovatskaya won the pole vault, while junior Kali Strother had the fourth best time in Penn history in the 400 meters and freshman Charlotte Pope moved into a tie for seventh in school history in the weight throw.

Last season at this meet, the 3,200-meter relay, Kimberly Shooshan's 1,000-meter run and the triple jumps by Kathryn Gevitz and Camille Richard qualified for the ECAC's.

Complete results from the New Balance Inviational will be available on PennAthletics.com shortly after the conclusion of Saturday’s events.
