Four sprinters ran at least 7.77 in the 60m dash heats and did not advance to the finals. Five others went below 58 in the 400m dash and won’t run in Sunday’s final. The depth in the League is notable.

UPDATE: The women’s 800m heats are in the books and 2:12.30 didn’t advance to the final. As recently as 2001, that would have won the Heps’ title. Trina Bills of Columbia was the top qualifier in 2:09.94.

The top qualifiers in the earlier events were Columbia junior Marvellous Iheukwumere in the 60 (7.60, just .01 ahead of Harvard sophomore Danielle Barbian) and Princeton sophomore Cecilia Barowski in the 400 (55.29). Aside from Iheukwumere, the other seven 60m finalists are freshmen or sophomores.
