It doesn’t matter if a groundhog sees its shadow tomorrow: he already knows there are six weekends left in the 2013 indoor track season.
A lot of action will be taking place these next two weekends before the main conference event: Indoor Heps. If you’re planning on coming, let us know on the facebook event page. We hope that Punxsutawney Phil is helping Bill Murray drive to Cambridge for the meet.
Princeton has already started their competitions for this week by hosting a heptathlon event at Jadwin Gym on Wednesday and Thursday. The Tigers went 1-2-3-4 (out of 8 competitors), with Stephen Soerens leading the pack with 5,094 points, followed by Richard Sheldon (5,074), Brad Pelisek (4,919) and Brian Oslin (4,789).
