Updated Indoor Record Book
PHILADELPHIA – Just two weeks ago, the University of Pennsylvania indoor women's track and field team was at Ashenfelter Indoor Track in State College, Pa. They will return there this weekend for the Penn State National on Friday and Saturday.
The two-day meet begins on Friday at 12:15 p.m. with the heptathlon events. The long jump (5:45 p.m.), pole vault (5:45 p.m.), and weight throw (8:15 p.m.) will compete Friday night on the field. Track events on the first day start at 5:45 p.m., with the 5,000 meter run, and end at 10 p.m. with the 60-meter dash. Day Two of the meet commences with the continuation of the heptathlon events at the early start time of 9:30 a.m. In the field events, the triple jump and shot put both start at 3 p.m., and will follow the high jump at 11 a.m. Track events on the final day will start at 10:20 a.m. with the 400 meters and conclude at approximately 6:15 p.m. with the 4x400 relay.
Last week at the Great Dane Classic, the Quakers finished third as a team behind freshman Leslie Kovach's Athlete of the Meet effort. Kovach won the 5,000 meters with a meet-record time and the sixth-best time in school history. Senior Jamie Massarelli finished the 500 meters with the second-best time in Penn history, but it was the Quakers' underclassmen that were most impressive, accumulating 45 of the team's 68.83 points.
Last season at the Penn National Invitational, Anna Aagenes qualified for the ECAC's in the 800 meters in her first attempt, while underclassmen Rachel Villa (500 meters) and Kristen Judge (high jump) posted career best efforts at the time.
Complete results from the Penn State National will be available on PennAthletics.com shortly after the conclusion of Saturday’s events.
