Paul VI grad Aliya Garozzo blasted a hot 600 to open her sophomore year at Penn Friday at Ocean Breeze in Staten Island.
Garozzo, who dipped under a minute in the 400-meter intermediates as a Penn freshman, ran 1:32.49 Friday to win the three-lap event at the Seahawk Shootout.
It was the first lifetime 600 for Garozzo, who ran 1:13.98 for 500 meters last winter and lowered her 400 PR to 56.31 last spring.
Garozzo led a Penn sweep of the first five places in the race. Sophomore Isabella Whitaker was second in 1:32.64
Garozzo ran 59.76 to place second in the 400IH the Ivy League Championships in New Haven in May.
