Bloody Shoe

 

prtf-bleeding-shoeYou encounter blood, sweat, and tears at Heps.  Sweat is the most common, while tears are usually of the happy or heart breaking kind.  The blood portion is a bit rare, but it can happen on occasion.

Like here – Princeton’s Emily de La Bruyere managed to bleed through her shoes en route to her 7th place finish in 9:32.39.  Ow.

Meanwhile, in the pentathlon – Dartmouth freshman Allison Frantz leads after 2 events with 1,868 points after claiming the best marks in the hurdles and high jump (1.74m).  Taylor Morgan (Princeton) and Madison Hansen (Harvard) are within 200 points, Morgan in 1,755 and Hansen in 1,672.

For the heptathlon – three events are done, and Dartmouth sophomore Nico Robinson has about 160 point lead over Princeton’s Stephen Soerens.  Robinson had the best marks in both the dash (7.09) and long jump (7.30m) while Soerens had the best throw in the shot put (15.05m).  Robinson has 2,316 points, Soerens has 2,167 points.  Defending champion Peter Rhodes is just behind Soerens in 2,150 points.
