Westwood student athletes on the spring Track and Field team are heading to The Penn Relays at the University of Pennsylvania this Thursday, April 26, running in two different events. The Penn Relays is the oldest and the largest track and field competition, first beginning on April 21, 1895 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This year’s competition will span from this Thursday to this Saturday, April 28.

The student athletes running in the competition from Westwood High School are seniors, Sophia Beutel and Annalise Jarski, junior, Kate Lukaszcyk, and freshmen, Tatianna Beutel and Skyla Burke. Jarski, Lukaszyck, and the Beutels will be competing in the high school girls’ 4×400 meter relay, and Lukaszyck, Burke, and the Beutels will be competing in the 4×100 meter relay. Both races are set to occur Thursday afternoon.

“I think I’ll run well for me, even if my time is slower than other peoples’, because of the competitive environment there,” says Jarski. “I know I’ll be nervous leading up to the race, but this is an experience I won’t ever have again, so I’m looking forward to taking it all in.”

Thursday’s weather forecast proves to commence the event with perfect running weather for both the Westwood athletes, as well as the hundreds of high school and college athletes traveling from around the country to compete this weekend.
