PISCATAWAY, N.J. (April 24, 2014) – The Rutgers men’s track and field team will be at the 120th running of The Penn Relays this weekend at historic Franklin Field. More than 22,000 athletes from around the world will convene upon Philadelphia to compete in the event which has seen more competitors enter than any meet in the world.
At last year’s running of the Penn Relays, RU was led by former Scarlet Knight James Plummer in the discus, as well as the 4x200 relay team.
Plummer won his third title in the discus after throwing for 59.23m for the championship. It was the first time in school history a Scarlet Knight had won a trio of titles at the Penn Relays.
The 4x200 team of current junior Kadeem Douse (Ewing, N.J.), junior D’Andre Jordan (Brooklyn, N.Y.), sophomore Rajee Dunbar (Arlington, Va.) and redshirt junior Corey Crawford (Oakland, N.J.) took fourth in the IC4A finals clocking in with a time of 1:27.57.
