HepsTrack had projected a Cornell sweep on Friday, but the Princeton women are hard charging toward the Big Red and the Tiger men are maintaining a large lead as Red opportunities are going by the wayside.
The latest example is that the favorite and leading qualifier in the men’s 800-meter run, Cornell rookie Rutger Admirand, wound up third behind Columbia’s Harry McFann and Princeton’s Michael Williams in the final. McFann won in 1:49.31. Princeton’s team score lead over Cornell is now 122-98 3/4.
In the women’s 800, the Orange and Black secured 16 points as Greta Feldman won in 2:06.22 and Kacie O’Neil was third. Harvard newcomer Erika Veidis took second in a race that took 2:09.19 to score! After 16 events, Cornell holds a 104-90 lead over Princeton.
Yale’s Michael Levine sent Yale from eighth place as a team to fourth by winning the discus with a toss of 53.79 meters (176-6) while Cornell freshman Stephen Mozia was second (174-6).
