The last man into the mile final, Dartmouth freshman Tim Gorman, qualified in 4:11.99. If you know about the Heps’ mile recent history, you have to ask, “Will the Sunday’s final be slower than that?”

A lot of Heps’ greats have participated in the cat-and-mouse games that have resulted in comically poor times. Ask Kyle Merber, who won in 4:21 last year! Will someone make it an honest pace in 2013?

Might be a good time to point out that former Dartmouth runner Matt Miner, who posted a 4:25.42 in the Merber win last year, ran 3:59.01 for the Oregon Ducks today at their conference championships.

In the dash, four of the runners hit the IC4A standard, but didn’t advance to the final. The top time in the event was a speedy 6.77 by Dartmouth senior Connor Reilly, who appears determined to get a title this weekend. This promises to be a fast final!

Meanwhile, the top four qualifying times in the 60m hurdles? They came between 8.07 and 8.14 and they were all performed by freshmen and sophomores. The leader was Harvard soph Jarvis Harris.
