Senior distance runner Megan Powell gives us an inside look at the Quakers' upcoming meet at the Larry Ellis Invitational in Princeton.
The Quakers are coming off of an exciting two weeks, which included hosting athletes from Cambridge and Oxford last week, and competing at George Mason for one of the biggest collegiate invitationals this past weekend. Before the Brits came to Philly, they lost a dual meet in which Penn teamed up with Cornell in to take the win. Great performances were had, with one of the most significant being Conner Paez’s return race after over a year and a half of intense PT and training following an accident that left him in recovery at the start of the 2011 school year.
Both teams enjoyed the great opportunity to get to know the Brits, which was especially interesting since Penn hosted athletes from the University of Birmingham in England just last year. Next year, Penn and Cornell will hold a dual meet against each other to form a team that will then go overseas to be hosted in return.
