The Most Outstanding Track Performer for men was a shared honor between Princeton junior Peter Callahan and Cornell senior Nick Wade. Callahan won the mile and took his Tigers from fourth to first in the distance medley relay while Wade scored two second-place efforts, in the 1k and mile.
The Most Outstanding Field Performer for men was a split decision between Harvard senior Nico Weiler and Princeton junior Damon McLean. Weiler broke the all-time League standard in the pole vault, clearing 5.38 meters (17-7 3/4). It was the third-best vault ever by a New England collegian. McLean won both the long and triple jumps, each with impressive distances — 7.55 meters (24-9 1/4) in the LJ and 15.93 meters (52-3 1/4) in the TJ.
Again, the coaches don’t select a top rookie, but we favored Ned Willig of Brown.
