CYO Night at the Penn Relays - Meet Program

CYO Night at the Penn Relays will run Rain or Shine. We will break for thunderstorms in the area, at the direction of Penn's facilities team. We will stay on-site to run races as long as necessary/possible. Put your Blessed Mother statues in the window and pray for sunshine (I'll settle for cloudy skies and no thunder)!

Please review the security procedures. Entrance to Franklin Field will again be from the South Gates. Be prepared for security searches.

Thank you Contrast Photography and Posterun for providing the photos and artwork for the program this year. Text "CYOSPORTS" to 44222 and register your email to get an update on when photos from the event will be online.

The Penn Relays are offering $5 discount tickets to CYO Athletes and Families. Use the code "CYO2016" on the Penn Relays ticketing website - "Specials &  Students" section.

Penn Relays Roster Form - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Updated - Penn Relays Roster Form

(There was a typo in the form in the packet - the fax number was our office number and the "Senior" Boys said "Junior" Boys. Rough year for me on the typos)

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Here is a good read about Irish American Athletes and the the Irish-American Athletic Club.

(always important to remember that "Athletics" really means: track and field)

Bonus point if you can point out the unspoken Philadelphia track and field connection!

CYO athletes become NCAA champions & all Americans

Congrats to Emma Keenan, a CYO track and field alumni from our Lady of Guadalupe, who ran the 800m leg for the NCAA Distance Medley Relay Champions, Georgetown University!

Emma currently holds the Cadet Girl's 800m Record - 2:16.64.

plus Tom Coyle from St. Stan's was the 1200m leg on the Stanford Men's DMR which finished 4th!

NCAA results from flash results  -

(fun note - flash results also does the timing for Penn Relays, including CYO night! (for free!) and their exclusive results formating code was written by Vince Giarraco, from St. Pats - Kennet Square! CYO track and field is everywhere!)
