In previous years, the meets that occurred on this upcoming weekend were the “last chance qualifiers” within the DI NCAA window. This is not the case for this year, as Heps weekend was the final weekend for qualifying.
But that does not mean we cannot compete, does it?
For the majority of the conference, the ECAC and IC4A Championships will be final indoor competition for this season. This regional meet will begin Friday night with the multi-events and last through Sunday at Boston University. Details on the schedule can be found here. You can follow the meet through Lancer Timing’s website. Last year, both Cornell squads finished in the top 5 at these championships. The men finished in 2nd place, behind Tommy Butler‘s win in the high jump, while the women finished 5th. Other event winners include Dartmouth’s Connor Reilly (60m dash), Dartmouth’s Will Geoghegan (mile), and Harvard’s Nico Weiler (pole vault).
Columbia will be hosting their Last Chance Qualifier at the Armory on Saturday night. No, this meet name is not a misnomer – Division III athletes can qualify for their NCAA meet at this meet. We’re not sure how many Lions will race, but we’ll share the results if they do.
Also, as previously shared, Stephen Mozia and HepsNation alumni Erison Hurtault and Samyr Laine will be competing at the IAAF World Indoor Track and Field Championships in Sopot, Poland. You can follow the meet here.
Otherwise, the only remaining collegiate indoor track and field competition would be NCAAs next weekend. Oh indoor, must it end so soon? I guess we’ll always have Heps…
