Clearfield Track And Field Athlete Matt Collins Qualifies for The Penn Relays

Additionally, the eight fastest Tri-State (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware) teams qualify for Tri-State final, Saturday, 1:45 p.m. The team of Wright, Burkett, Oguledo and Stephens will race in this final. Bledsoe won the high jump in the Larry Ellis Invitational, while junior Spencer Long won the 400 hurdles with a personal record of 52.61 seconds.

Shamokin will be the lone school competing today, as the Indians boys are entered in the 400-meter relay.

Earlier, Stevens and Dunmore ran legs in the women's 100-meter relay to bring OR its first victory of the day. "So right before 300 my legs wanted to go so I just chose to sprint it out on the back straightaway and excel a little bit more every 50 (meters)". "With them, we now have six athletes who can keep our relays alive".

Reports have placed the number of people expected in Philadelphia for the Draft event at 200,000, while the Relays anticipates 115,000 attendees over its three-day event.

Johnson also watched his men's distance medley relay team of Blake Haney, Marcus Chambers, Mick Stanovsek, and Sam Prakel outrun a well-bunched field and win in 9:32.61, the Ducks' third win in the event in the last four years. "Anderson passed on the opening height of 14'-5.25" (4.40m) before clearing 14'-11" (4.55m) and 15'-5" (4.70m) on his third and second attempts at the heights, respectively, followed by clearances on the first attempts at his final two bars of 15'-11" (4.85m) and 16'-2.75" (4.95m). Graduate student Danielle Aragon (3:20 split) started the race for the Irish and handed the baton to junior Payton Miller (53.5), who took control of first place.

Ed'Ricus Williams, the 2016 Florida Relays men's high jump champion, hopes to find his stride at 1 p.m., while FSU's quartet of men's 800-meter runners - led by Jake Burton - will be hunting NCAA East marks at 4:35 p.m.

Roger Reina, Penn's senior associate athletic director, is coordinating this 123rd running of the relays.

During their senior year, Goldstein and Jawork have developed a cordial, if still competitive, friendship. "One of the biggest privileges I've had is to run anchor at Villanova".

"Running on the same track as Olympians is pretty special", Kling said.

"I think we've been prepared for this", Prakel said. Then, you feel like you're going to lose.

"Penn Athletics is delighted to announce Nike's significant and continuing sponsorship of the Penn Relays", said Dr. M. Grace Calhoun, Director of Athletics and Recreation at Penn.

Another record fell in the women's discus, as Florida State's Kellion Knibb shattered her year-old mark with a toss of 203 feet, 7 inches.

Bottelier and Parks were glad to share a warm, late-April afternoon competing together.

"It opened my eyes to track and field", the coach said. It's a good opportunity to go out there and hopefully do something good.
