PHILADELPHIA - In a unique and intriguing meet on Saturday, Penn will head to Ithaca, N.Y., to go head-to-head with Ivy rival Cornell. The Big Red have been a recent track powerhouse in the Ivy League, claiming seven of the last eight outdoor Heptagonal championships. However, the Quakers are coming off an impressive meet in which they defeated defending champion Princeton on its home track.
The Quakers enter the meet ranked No. 6 in the Mid-Atlantic region, but Cornell boasts a No. 1 ranking in the Northeast region for the second straight week. The dual meet starts at 11 a.m. with the hammer throw. The track events will get started at noon with the steeplechase. The meet will then finish with the 4x400 meter relay at 1:50 p.m. For a complete meet schedule, click the link above.
Last Saturday, the Quakers were victorious when they traveled to Princeton to compete in the annual Penn-Yale-Princeton meet. It was Penn's first win in the meet since 2006. The Quakers recorded five wins in the field events, with senior Kathryn Gevitz taking first in the long and triple jumps. Yelizaveta Lozovatskaya won the pole vault, clearing a career-best of 3.70 meters, which also qualified her for the ECAC championships. Freshman Morgan Wheeler took first place in the javelin, while Kristen Judge recorded a victory in the high jump. The Quakers also recorded seven victories on the track, with sophomore Paige Madison winning both the 100 and 400-meter hurdles. Senior Anna Aagenes was victorious in the 1,500 meters, running in an ECAC-qualifying and second best all-time at Penn of 4:24.32. Jamie Massarelli also qualified for the ECAC meet with a win in the 800 meters in 2:10.26. Kali Strother won the 400 meters while qualifying for ECACs in a time of 54.92. Both relay teams were also victorious.
This will be a rare dual meet with Cornell for the Quakers. Last season, the Big Red traveled to Franklin Field to team up with Penn at the biennial meet against the Oxford/Cambridge squad. Penn and Cornell remained unbeaten against the team from England, with six Quakers placing first in their events, while Anna Aagenes qualified for the NCAA Regionals in the 800, running an impressive 2:08.29.
A complete recap of the meet will be available on PennAthletics.com following the last event. There will also be a few members of the Red and Blue competing at Princeton's Larry Ellis Invitational on Friday and Saturday.
