The Ivy League competition for this weekend started yesterday at the Texas Relays, and there was one Ivy event win. Olivia Mickle (B ’13) won the women’s 5,000m race by a comfortable margin (20+ seconds), winning in 16:35.43. Mickle is finishing her NCAA eligibility at Texas while pursuing her master’s degree in chemical engineering. She competed for the Longhorns during the indoor season, capping her season with a 2nd-place finish in the Big 12 Championships 5,000m (16:21.29).
There will be more Ivy League action today and tomorrow all around the country. We do have one meet cancellation though – due to the winter conditions up in Hanover, N.H., Dartmouth’s lone home meet this outdoor season has been cancelled.
