Princeton’s Donn Cabral — a week after being named the most outstanding performer at the Penn Relays — is making his bid for even more hardware by winning the Outdoor Heps 10k in 29:32.92, the fastest time at Outdoor Heps since 1994. Cabral closed strong with a 2:02 over the last 800 meters and 58 seconds for the final lap.
Brown senior Dan Lowry was second in 29:35.70 followed by Harvard sophomore James Leakos (29:37.17), Heps cross country champ Ethan Shaw of Dartmouth (29:37.78) and Princeton senior Brian Leung (29:38.22). With that event wrapping up the day for the men, Princeton stretched its Day 1 lead to 21 points with 52 overall. Harvard and Cornell are tied for second with 31 points each.
The Princeton women took a huge stand in the pole vault, tallying 22 points as juniors Tory Worthen (12-10) and Lauren Tauscher (12-5 1/2) went 1-2. Another Tiger, Bianca Reo, was tied for third at 12-1 1/2.
Brown continued its throwing supremacy in the women’s javelin as sophomore Niina Al-Hassan won with a final round toss of 154-10. She was sitting in third prior to that, but passed both Hannah Mayer of Harvard and Victoria Imbesi of Cornell with her final effort.
