With a short break in the Heps action, I’ll get to posting some of the women’s preliminary round results.
Day 1 of the women’s heptathlon is complete, and the competition is tight. Dartmouth’s Janae Dunchack holds a slim 10 point lead over Princeton’s Elizabeth McKenna after four events (3,176 to 3,766 points), while Harvard’s Madison Hansen is not too far back in 3,145 points. Heptathlon action resumes tomorrow at 11am.
It looks like the hurdles, 400m, and 1500m preliminary rounds were completed before the first signs of lightning was seen in the track vicinity. (I have also read on twitter that is looks like the men’s javelin is done, but there are no results available online yet) While we do have some fast times for the preliminary rounds, not all of the marks are wind-legal so the numbers in the 2nd column from the right are the wind readings in meters per second.
