Wait is worth it for Piccirillo, Villanova at Penn Relays

Posted April 29, 2017

UBER: Uber is the official rideshare app for the 123rd running of the Penn Relays.

Cleirigh Buttner got the baton for the anchor leg of Friday's race with the Wildcats and Stanford gaining ground on the rest of the pack. "Hopefully that will put me under 59 for when I run it next". She entered the Philadelphia meet as the 10th seed, having hit only in the 140s by the entry deadline.

Ciccolini said her best throw coming out of the preliminaries was 151 feet, and she already was in fourth place - which, she could not have known at the time, would not have changed, since the fifth-place throw was less than 150 feet.

That lead was then doubled by Nwogwugwu's magical anchor run, as she hammered a 54.79 to help North Penn win by almost 11 seconds, a very significant margin for such a prestigious meet.

"You hear everybody talk about it, like, 'Oh, the Penn Relays, the Penn Relays!' But to actually be here, see everyone here is just fantastic and to know all that hard work you're about to do is going right here on that track", said Nefertari Bowen, a junior at Pennsauken High School.

On the women's side, senior Allison Harris took first place in the pole vault and junior Christina Walter won the 200m race at the event. I think this was a good test for her today. "That was a little disappointing; we wanted to be the top New Jersey team in the race". You just can't beat toughness. After she ran a strong 800-meter leg to key the 'Cats to a victory in Thursday's distance medley relay (see story), Procaccio talked about her "amazing turnover, to go from zero to 60". "It didn't matter what the pace was, she just found a way to keep it close".

The Georgetown women have previously won the Penn Relays COA DMR three times, most recently in 2016.

Hutchinson and Keegan were the two most important legs.

It also raised "major doubts" about the "accuracy, exhaustiveness and sincerity of the decommissioning of Syria's chemical weapons".

"I just have full confidence in myself and remember what I'm doing it for and who I'm doing it for", said Cleirigh-Buttner, a native of Dublin, Ireland. Hutchinson, a sophomore who was part of the winning 4 x 1,500 relay team previous year, gave Keegan the baton in a virtual tie with Notre Dame's Payton Miller. "But still, it's really nice, and I like it a lot".

Murphy will be a part of the distance medley relay, the 4x800-meter relay and the 4xMile relay teams for IU.

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.

Despite that realization, the indoor All-Met Athlete of the Year picked off the last runner she would pass on the home stretch.
