One week to go until Outdoor Heps. Getting excited? I know we are. This weekend, we will be working on our Outdoor Heps event previews, as well as gathering other information that (we feel) can enhance the Heps experience. Brett Hoover will be at Outdoor Heps, but will you? Let us know on facebook, and tell your friends too! Want to help enhance the Outdoor Heps experience? We’re always looking for photos, tweets, videos, or anything fun that we can share with those of HepsNation who cannot make it out to New Haven. Feel free to share items on facebook (either in our HepsTrack group, Hepsnation page, or using the general hashtag #oHeps), on twitter (directly to us @hepstrack or using the hashtag #oHeps), or by email (through our Contact link). We’ll remind everyone of this next week.
But in the meantime, we have some Ivy action this weekend that we can follow.
Princeton will be holding their Elite Meet today and tomorrow, where they are anticipating members from Columbia and Penn to join them. Action begins today at 1:30pm with the hammer throw. Follow the meet through this live results page.
Columbia will also be sending some of their middle distance crew out to California for the Payton Jordan Invitational. Some alumni will be out there as well – Ben True, Joe Stilin, Dan Lowry, and Donn Cabral are entered in a loaded 5,000m race, where Flotrack is anticipating an American to break the 13:00 minute barrier. Ethan Shaw will be running the 10,000m, Peter Callahan is entered in the 800m, and Cabral is doubling back with the steeplechase. For the women, we got a lot of Ivy – Katie Kellner and Carrie Dimoff are entered in the women’s 10,000m; Ashley Higginson, Abby Levene, and Alexi Pappas in the 5,000m; Anna Willard in the steeplechase; Kate Grace, Greta Feldman, and Sammy Silva in the 1,500m. Flotrack will be offering a web stream to their paying members of Flotrack Pro. Don’t worry, you should be able to follow the meet via live results.
Brown, Dartmouth, Harvard, and Yale will not compete this weekend.
