STARKVILLE, Miss. – Following last week’s dual-meet campaign, Mississippi State track and field will divide its squad again this weekend to compete at the historic Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pa., and the Golden Eagle Classic in Hattiesburg, Miss.

The Penn Relays, slated for April 24-26, is the oldest and largest track and field competition in the United States. Hosted by the University of Pennsylvania at Franklin Field, the event is in its 120th year after debuting on April 21, 1895.

“The Penn Relays are one of the most premier track and field events,” MSU coach Steve Dudley said. “Some of the best athletes in the world will be competing, and there is an energy that surrounds the track that is just electric. It is one of those places where every athlete needs to compete at least once in their career.”

This year’s edition of the Penn Relays features athletes from 38 states and eight countries, including Jamaica and Puerto Rico. Nine other Southeastern Conference teams will also join the Bulldogs, including Auburn, Arkansas, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt.

Competition in Philadelphia will kick off at 10 a.m. on Thursday and conclude around 11:00 p.m. Friday’s meet is slated for 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and the Penn Relays are scheduled to wrap up on Saturday, beginning at 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.

MSU will also see action at Southern Miss on April 26 at the Golden Eagle Classic. Events at Marshall Bell Track and Field Complex are expected to begin on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. with field events. Running events will start at noon, beginning with the men’s 3000-meter steeplechase.

Complete meet information and schedules can be found at www.thepennrelays.com and www.southernmiss.com. Live results for the 2014 Penn Relays will be available on the meet website, and Golden Eagle Classic results will be provided by xpresstiming.com.
