PHILADELPHIA -- Coming as it does in an Olympic year, the 1992 Penn Relay Carnival could set records on and off the track during its April 23 to 25 run at Franklin Field.The long-term financial outlook, however, is not nearly so optimistic.Asked about increasingly large revenue shortfalls stemming from a sluggish economy, carnival director Tim Baker said, jokingly, "We're already spending our children's inheritances." But the intended humor of that remark had an edge to it.Two years ago, the Penn Relays listed modest operating expenses of $305,000, down from $355,000 in 1988.

PHILADELPHIA -- By the time the sun appeared late in the afternoon, turning Franklin Field from Philadelphia's version of the Arctic Circle into a near tropical paradise, it was too late to save the day for Baltimore-area high schools and colleges at the 99th Penn Relays.Their fates had long since been sealed in the chill and wind that had dominated the event from the beginning, making every trip around the track a less-than-enjoyable experience."It was freezing cold out there," said Towson State's Shawn Talley, echoing the sentiments of nearly everybody after his school finished well down the list in the 4 x 100 relay.

PHILADELPHIA -- When Stephanie Ryall steps onto the track tonight at the 120th Penn Relays, she'll be one of only three Canadian individuals at the event. None of the three have run there before. The Hamilton runner says a calm strategy should help her handle the pressure. "I want to go for a good time" the 11th-grader at Westdale Secondary said earlier this week when asked about her goals. "I'm not really going for place. " "Girls like Tessa Barrett, Hannah DeBalsi ... those girls are much faster than me. " For Ryall, a good time in the 3000m run means 9:45 or faster, which is just over 10 seconds quicker than what she has run at this year's indoor meets.

Alexis Franklin is one of the most successful track and field athletes in Old Mill history. This year, the senior ran the fastest times in the entire country for the 400-meter hurdles (59.05 seconds) and the 300-meter hurdles (41.49 seconds). Those times came while winning the 400 at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia and the 300 at the Bob Golliday Invitational at Old Mill. The 300 time is also believed to be the fastest time ever run in the event in Maryland. But, to have it count in the state record book, she will have to do it again at the state meet, May 25-26.
