Gibson Captures Penn Relays Title on Day Two

Paul Swangard hosts coverage of the Penn Relays, joined by analyst Craig Masback and reporter Carolyn Manno at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Penn.

"The Penn Relays is where I got my start in track and field", Gondak said.

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

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.

Piccirillo finished her 1,600-meter leg in 4 minutes, 32.76 seconds to tie the women's college record of seven Penn Relays victories held by former Wildcats Michelle Bennett and Kathy Franey.

"I have confidence in myself and I just remember what I am doing it for and who I am doing it for", Cleirigh Buttner said. "It's really exciting here because you see everybody go so fast but I was really nervous because I didn't know what to expect. "Sports Illustrated" has it on its bucket list of sporting events you must go to in your lifetime", Reina said of the fanfare and excitement associated with the annual tradition. You just can't beat toughness.

"Since the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Nike athletes have won more Olympic medals than athletes representing any other sponsor", said Dave Johnson, the Frank Dolson Director of Penn Relays. Penn's relay starts are like nothing else in the sport - crowded and contact-filled with jostling to equal a NY subway auto at rush hour. "It didn't matter what the pace was, she just found a way to keep it close". Business development manager Shelton Rose has seen a number of athletes from Jamaica run at the legendary track meet. More importantly, there's potential for Penn to make a splash (hopefully, for the Quakers, not literally) in the event, as both the men's and women's fields will feature some strong Red and Blue talent.

"Nicole got the baton in the lead and the girl sitting on her is a world junior bronze medalist who ran 4:08 last summer", Procaccio said.

"I think we've been prepared for this", Prakel said. "But still, it's really nice, and I like it a lot". It made feel like I was running pretty fast.

Two-time U.S. Olympian Wallace Spearmon leads the men's team, along with American Brycen Spratling, who is part of the team that set the world record in the distance medley relay, and 2011 world gold medalist in the 4x400m Mike Berry.

These events are always the most star-studded contest at the meet for both men and women.

Top engineers have brought the relays up to speed technically, and that proprietary software - specifically designed for the events - will ensure competitors clock in accurately and results will be tabulated instantly.

Ever since her brutal initiation into the sport, Patriot senior Rachel McArthur hasn't been one to give up on a race.
