@GWXCTrack | Live Results | Watch Live
LEADING OFF: Six George Washington outdoor track student-athletes will compete at the 122nd running of the legendary Penn Relays at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
ABOUT THE RELAYS: Regularly attracting upwards of 15,000 participants from colleges, high schools and track clubs throughout North America and the world, the Penn Relays is the oldest and largest track and field competition in the United States. Attendance routinely tops 100,000 across the three-day event.
This will be the first time in school history that the Colonials will compete at the event.
LINEUP: GW will send six competitors to Philadelphia to compete against some of the best collegiate runners in the nation.
DiBiasio's school-record, 5000m time of 17:16.83 continues to rank as the fifth-best at that distance in the Atlantic 10 this season.
Tucker's program-record mark of 14:35.89, also set at the Colonial Relays this season, ranks eighth amongst his counterparts within the conference.
GW will also send a men's distance medley relay squad to the Penn Relays where the quartet of sophomore Chris Shaffer (1200m leg), freshman Sawyer Bilton (400m leg), senior Rob Craven (800m leg) and sophomore Ryan DePinto (anchor, mile leg), will compete on Friday afternoon at 2:35 p.m.
A LOOK AHEAD: The rest of GW's men's and women's teams will be idle this weekend in preparation of the upcoming Atlantic 10 Championships, May 7-8, at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
