The meeting will be a season opener for several programs, including the host school – the University of Pennsylvania – after the Ivy League canceled the indoor season competitions over concerns with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Having gotten the green light to begin spring competition, the University of Pennsylvania is delighted to finally return to the track but revealed that spectators are still not allowed to attend home events.

Teams Competing At The 2021 Penn Challenge

The Penn Challenge returns to the schedule after last season’s meeting was canceled due to the COVID-19. Besides the home school, Villanova, Rider, Temple, and Saint Joseph’s University are expected to field athletes.

Having not competed in an outdoor meet since May 2019, Saint Joseph’s head coach Mike Glavin has revealed his expectations for this season.

“In the early meets, it’s to get used to being back to competition,” Glavin said on the school’s website. “As we progress, I hope we can move to our typical expectations of everyone rising to his level of ability and competing well. They cannot represent the SJU Hawks any better than that.”

Glavin also revealed that Hawks will have a full schedule this season.

“We have a pretty full schedule, although we will be seeing much of the same competition week in and week out,” he added. “But Philadelphia offers some outstanding teams in Penn, Villanova, La Salle, Temple, and SJU, so we will not ‘want’ for comp.”
