Maksim Korolev of the host Crimson ran away with the 3,000-meter title late Saturday to give Harvard the team lead after day one of Indoor Heps. At the bell, he charged away from Dartmouth’s John Bleday and Columbia’s Daniel Everett to win in 8:04.19, a top-10 all-time mark at the Championships. Chris Bendtsen of Princeton stormed into second by the finish to give his Tigers some needed points.

Meanwhile Princeton has three of the top five first-day scorers in the heptathlon, with Stephen Soerens leading the way in the tight pack.
