Penguins Take their Talents to the Tennessee Relays for Three Day Meet

Knoxville, Tenn. - The Youngstown State track and field team traveled to Tennessee for the three-day Tennessee Relays meet that started on Thursday. There were only four events that athletes were competing in on Thursday, those being the men and women's 10,000 meter run and hammer throw.
