Women's Track and Field Relay Teams Compete at Prestigious Penn Relays

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Frostburg State University women's track and field team sent a pair of teams to compete in two relay events at the prestigious 2003 Penn Relay Carnival on Thursday through Saturday at the University of Pennsylvania's Franklin Field in Philadelphia.

The 4x100-meter relay team of freshman Chelsea Lewis (Indianapolis, Ind./Pike), junior Maria Ferguson (Fairmount Heights, Md./Laurel), freshman Heather Lease (Cumberland, Md./Fort Hill) and senior Serena Wheeler (Baltimore, Md./Merganthaler) placed second in their heat with a time of 49.90.

In the 4x400-meter relay, sophomore Lynnea Finch (Franklin/Owings Mills, Md.), Ferguson, Lease and Wheeler placed sixth in their heat with a time of 4:06.71.

While the Bobcats did not make the required times to continue competing through the weekend, they had faster times than many of the other institutions entered in both events.

Now in its 109th year, the Penn Relay Carnival has evolved into one of the best attended track events in the world. This year's field will feature 22,000 entries, including the top high school and college athletes in the country, as well as several "Team USA vs. The World" relays. Attendance for the three-day carnival is likely to top 100,000 for the third year in a row

The Bobcats return to action May 2-3 at the Mason-Dixon Conference Championships at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Va.
