Here are some quick takes from the entries:
• Dartmouth senior Abbey D’Agostino will compete in the mile and 5,000m run. That leaves Dartmouth’s Dana Giordano and Columbia’s Waverly Neer to battle for the 3k title.
• Cornell sprinter Bruno Hortelano-Roig and Princeton’s Tom Hopkins will miss one another until relays. Hortelano will compete in the 60m and 400m dashes while Hopkins will run the 500m and the long jump.
• The men’s mile has six guys — including sub-4s Will Geoghegan of Dartmouth and Michael Williams of Princeton — who have run under 4:02 this season. But the final will almost assuredly finish in around 4:15. It’s a Heps thing!
• Here’s a shocker that could have big implications in the women’s team chase. Harvard’s Gabrielle Scott, who won the 400m last year and has anchored some very swift Crimson relays, is not entered in the individual 400m. For whom will that leave a door open?
• Columbia’s Marvellous Iheukumere will take to the track in both the 60m and 200m dashes.
• Harvard’s Maksim Korolev, who has had a sensational season, will run for the title in the 5k, not the 3k or mile.
• The multi-events show an imbalance, with 14 women competing and just seven men.
