We Don’t Hate Sprinters, Promise


Okay, the winners start to come fast and furious at this point, so we will be slamming a bunch together. No emails telling us we hate sprinters, okay? The races are just quick and there is only so much time!

Men’s 110m Hurdles — Cornell senior Dan Hagberg, the heavy favorite, wins easy in 14.41 with Harvard freshman Jarvis Harris in second (14.61). The Big Red gains some more territory on Princeton in this one.

Women’s 100m Hurdles — Penn sophomore Gabi Piper wins in an impressive 14.09, ahead of Columbia junior Lucie Cincinatis (14.13). The rest of the pack was back a bit.

Men’s 400m Dash — Princeton sophomore point-producer Tom Hopkins gets a rather easy win in 46.43, ahead of Yale senior Matt Bieszard (46.92). Hopkins’ time is the third-fastest ever for an Ivy guy at Heps (but Navy had three faster in the day.)

Women’s 400m Dash — The freshmen prevail. Brown’s Lauren Waterbury gets the win over Princeton’s Cecilia Barowski, 54.17 to 54.43. The Bears’ Colby Lubman, a sophomore, was the elder of the top four in 55.04 as another rookie, Cornell’s Zena Kolliesuah was fourth (55.18).

Men’s 100m Dash — Brown’s John Spooney defends his sprint crown in 10.62. He had a couple of Connors in chase as Dartmouth’s Connor Reilly and Harvard’s Connor McCarthy, both timed in 10.72, were separated by .002! Cornell likely expected more than the six points it took.

Women’s 100m Dash — Princeton’s Eileen Moran got the easy win in the 100m dash, finishing in 11.89. Penn — which had three scorers in the event — was second and third with Leah Brown and Gabi Piper.

    One does wonder what a sprinter has to do to get considered for MVP honors:
    Moran wins 100 and 200 dominantly, anchors the winning 4×100 and runs a great leg on the 2nd place 4×400;
    Hopkins wins 400, 2nd Long jump and 200, anchors very close 4×100 and 4×400 for second places, contributes to 42 points (as he did last year);
    Spooney wins 100 and 200.

      Spooney also ran a PB on his leg of the 4×400 relay, which finished third overall. It was indeed quite an impressive weekend for all of the top sprinters.

      Well… Hard to argue too much when the women’s MVP broke three Heps records and the men’s winner doubled for the third straight time.
