Lacey Craker won the hammer throw for the Brown Bears, that program’s League-high seventh title in that event. The junior had a best throw of 55.75 meters (182-11), three feet better than runner-up Erin Rossi of Cornell.
After a long, ugly break of inaction, the women’s 400m hurdlers took to the oval and Cornell’s Molly Glantz made a statement by churning out a qualifying mark of 58.94. No one else was under a minute. The only school not to send a runner to the final was the only school without a woman in the field (Harvard). Of the other qualifiers, Columbia’s Kyra Caldwell and Penn’s Paige Madison are the most experienced.
