Cornell’s Nick Huber is having a pretty big first day in the decathlon at the Heps Championships, racking up 3,932 points. As usual, he scored well in the 100 (11.03) and 400 (49.62), but also posted a minimum of 721 points in each event. No one else is remotely close to that consistency. Brown’s Evan Weinstock is second with 3,709 points — including nearly 900 in the 100. Princeton freshman Stephen Soerens used a 6-7 1/2 high jump to move solidly into third (3,688).
The top of the women’s leader board is no surprise either as Dartmouth sophomore Janae Dunchack has amassed 3,068 first-day points. Her 5-8 high jump, the biggest point-gainer of the day, was matched by Harvard junior Mary Hirst, who is in second with 2,986. Former Heps champion Priscilla Trojano of Dartmouth is a distant third (2,811).
