Schedule | Men’s Results | Women’s Results | Twitter

Wow. Harvard and Columbia just made huge plays on the women’s side.

Autumne Franklin, just a freshmen, broke the meet record in the 60m hurdles, finishing in 8.43 as teammate Martina Salander was second in 8.57. Franklin took down Brenda Taylor’s 12-year-old Championship mark by .01 seconds.

The women’s triple jump may have been the best competition of the weekend as three athletes went 41-9 or better. In the end it was Queen Okeke of Columbia winning with a leap of 12.87 meters (42-2 3/4). All-American Nadia Eke was second (42-1 1/2) and Princeton’s Imani Oliver third (41-9 3/4).

Cornell rookie Max Hairston took the 60m hurdles in 8.01.
