That Didn’t Take Long

Princeton sophomore Conor McCullough has already set a meet record in the weight throw, the Championships’ first event. He won with a best of 22.94 meters (75-3 1/4), easily besting the competition. McCullough had four throws considerably farther than the long-standing Heps’ Championship mark of 70-5 by Ed Kania of Dartmouth (back in 1979).

The Cornell cage can accommodate a throw of around 80 feet, so McCullough’s bombs came close to the fence. Top six: McCullough (Princeton), Belden (Cornell), Glauser (Harvard), Brode (Harvard), Fiedler (Cornell) and Levine (Yale).

Jack Pfeifer interviewed McCullough after his win and uncovered breaking news: McCullough, despite having the nation’s top mark in the event, will not be competing at the NCAA Championships.

    So are there any other predictions on which meet records will fall this weekend?

    Conor is technically a freshman.  He’ll be in college for 3 more full years.

      But he attended school for the full year in 2010, albeit he only competed for outdoors 2010.  This was his first indoor season.
