A Little Bit Here, A Little Bit There


The Ivy League is going to be scattered all around this weekend, as a few schools are going to split up their squads so they could compete at multiple meets.

For example, Columbia is going to send their teams to three meets this weekend – the Metropolitan Championships at the NYC Armory on Friday, up to Cambridge for the Crimson Elite Meet on Friday, and then to New Haven for Yale’s Giegengack Invitational on Saturday.

Also, Harvard will be participating in two meets: their own Crimson Elite Meet on Friday, and then back to Boston University for the Scarlet and White Invitational on Saturday.

Dartmouth, Brown, and Yale will be sticking close to home this weekend.  Dartmouth and Yale will be hosting their major invitationals on Friday and Saturday: the Dartmouth Classic and the Giegengack Invitational.  Brown will be travelling to the southern part of Rhode Island (writer’s note: as a native Rhode Islander, yes, there is a southern part!) to participate in the URI Coaches Invitational.

Cornell, Penn, and Princeton will be flocking to State College, Penn. for the Penn State Sykes & Sabock Challenge that will take place on Friday and Saturday.  Live results and entry listings are available through Penn State’s athletic website.  Princeton will also be sending Megan Curham to South Bend to compete in Notre Dame’s Meyo Invitational on Friday night, where she will be racing the 5,000m.

Also on Saturday, we have the USATF Cross Country Championships in Boulder, Colo., where a number of alumni are included on the entry lists (Sean Barrett, Sage Canaday,  Liz Costello Zach Hine,  Maksim Korolev, Jake Sienko, Joe Stilin, Ben True).  A live web stream is available for free through USATF.tv, with the races starting at 12:15pm MT. The races will serve as the Team USA team qualifier for the 2015 IAAF World Cross Country Championships.  At the 2013 World Championships, Ben True led Team USA to a silver medal with his 6th place  individual finish.
