And she does it again!  Harvard’s Danielle Barbian leads a 1-2 Harvard finish in the women’s 60m final with a new meet and conference record of 7.40.  Like last year, Ashley Collinsworth ran a PR of 7.44 to finish as the runner’s up.  This gives Harvard a huge 18 points in the team’s race, as Columbia finished 3rd and 5th with Ashley Cunningham (7.53) and Akua Obeng-Akrofi (7.60).

To quote Dartmouth alum and Lancer Timing’s Rick Berryman “This is the most exciting Heps I’ve seen in a long time”.

In the men’s 60m final, 0.04 separated the top 6 scoring spread, but it was freshmen who went 1-2.  Harvard’s Malcolm Johnson outleaned Princeton’s Carrington Akosa for the win, 6.88 to 6.89.  It needed to be broken into the thousandths in order to determine the order for 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th (shown below).

1 Johnson, Malcolm FR Harvard 6.88@ 10
2 Akosa, Carrington FR Princeton 6.89@ 8

It was so quiet at the start of the men’s dash final that you could hear the hum of the scoreboard on the other side of the room.

The women’s 800m was expected to be a battle between Harvard’s Erika Veidis and Princeton’s Cecilia Barowski.  Veidis took the early lead, taking the field out in 61.7 for 400m, while Barowski and Columbia’s Brittney Wade waited on her shoulders.  Barowski took over the lead with 100m to go and pulled away for the win in 2:06.58 over Veidis’ 2:07.53.

1 Barowski, Cecilia JR Princeton 2:06.58@ 10
2 Veidis, Erika SR Harvard 2:07.53@ 8
3 Wade, Brittney SO Columbia 2:09.79@ 6
4 McDonnell, Shannon JR Yale 2:10.16@ 4

The men’s 800m had a bit of back-and-forth between Columbia’s Connor Claflin and Brown’s Henry Tufnell.  Claflin had the lead at the break and led through 400m, but Tufnell took over at the halfway point.  Harvard’s Jonas Aranda tried to challenge Tufnell at the bell, but it was Claflin who claimed the lead with 150m to go.  Claflin bolted to the win in 1:50.83, while Penn’s Drew Magaha did a stealth campaign from the outside to nab 2nd place.

1 Claflin, Connor SR Columbia 1:50.83@ 10
2 Magaha, Drew JR Penn 1:51.49@ 8
3 Tufnell, Henry SR Brown 1:51.63@ 6
