Rutgers prepares for historic Penn Relays

Rutgers prepares for historic Penn Relays

Both ran admirably given the high stakes and fast competition. And while the oldest and largest track and field meet in the nation is a sight to see, it can be tough to catch every event over the three-day bonanza. Nike works closely with the sport's national governing body, USA Track & Field (USATF), to bring some of the top athletes in the world to compete in the USA vs. the World's events held on Saturday of the Penn Relays and broadcast live on NBCSN.

Tim Hutchings handles the call for the Drake Relays from Des Moines, Iowa, joined by four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon, and reporter Todd Harris.

"It's a unique meet".

"Running on the same track as Olympians is pretty special", Kling said. With that in mind, here are five events you should put on your calendar to get the best, most efficient Relays experience.

Murphy said he knows how hard it will be but is excited for the opportunity.

Robinson also discussed how the team's Big Ten status has prepared it for high-profile meets like the Penn Relays.

To see the rest of North Penn's schedule at the 123rd Penn Relays, see here. "It's going to be a really good competition between us, Villanova, Stanford and IN to see who can come out on top - but those four are our best bet to win".

This exciting weekend has come one week after the Princeton Multi-Event Meet and the Larry Ellis Invitational.

Burg posted a season-best time of 1:01.80 in the 400-meter hurdles to record the fastest time of the year by a Midshipmen and notch an ECAC qualifying time.

Shigo, who took the title in the hammer throw in the college division a year ago, will be competing for the same title in the championship division this season. And here's another tribute to her speed - she outran homesickness. "This group is in the position where they can forget about how fast their times are and just go out and beat as many people as they can".

Nike has long had a major presence at the Penn Relays. "This is a very good opportunity to compete". "But there's room for improvement and to drop our time even more".

The junior also elaborated on where she plans to go to further her athletic development at this late point in the season.

After setting multiple school and personal records last weekend at the Virginia Challenge and the Michael Johnson Invitational, the Irish look to continue their streak of successful outings as they compete at the prestigious Penn Relays this weekend. This is the 39th title all-time for the Wildcats in a women's Championship of America race, and the victory also set a new individual record as senior Angel Piccirillo (Homer City, Pa.) became the first collegiate women's runner to win eight career Penn Relays watches.

She followed what she called "the Irish Pipeline" to Villanova, the one laid by Ronnie Delany, Eamonn Coghlan and Marcus O'Sullivan years ago, and during a campus visit got some idea of the import of the Relays when she saw hundreds of wheels lining the walls of one of the school's sports palaces.
