The University of Houston Cougar women's and men's track and field teams are headed to Franklin Field this weekend to compete in the 122nd annual running of the Penn Relays, which is held each year in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Penn Relays are the nation's first and oldest relay meets, as the first meet was held in April of 1895 at the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to traditional relay running events, the Cougars will also participate in other events such as long jump, decathlon, heptathlon and other track and field events.
