Penn’s Aliya Garozzo from Paul VI speeds to fast 600 win in 2023 indoor debut!!!!!!

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.

Here’s a new one: The Penn women’s track “history and record” book doesn’t include school records!

Garozzo’s bio page on Penn’s web site hasn’t been updated in two years, and the Penn women’s track page hasn’t been updated since May.
