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! https://s3.amazonaws.com/penn.sidearmsports.com/documents/2020/3/25/Women_s_Track_Field_Fact_Book.pdf

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.
