And we’re back on!

It looks like the wind has died down too, as Columbia’s Marvellous Iheukwumere has set both the Ivy League and conference meet record in the 100m dash with a wind-legal 11.63.  The previous record holder, Harvard’s Danielle Barbian, has also qualified for the finals.  Penn’s Lydia Ali ran a wind-legal 11.75 qualifier, which ties her for 8th fastest in conference history.

Women’s 800m Run:

Out of the 9 women who started the 400m hurdles, only 8 advance to tomorrow’s final.  How cruel.

Preliminaries

And in the final preliminary races of the day, Dartmouth’s  Kaitlin Whitehorn ran a record-book qualifying time in the 200m, 23.89, which places her 5th in both conference and conference meet history.  But Whitehorn did not have the top qualifying time – her teammate, Sara Kikut did (23.70) BUT she had a little wind assistance in her race.

Preliminaries
