My husband attended his first Indoor Heps championship this past weekend.  When he walked into the Gordon Indoor Track facility on Sunday, he was amazed on not only how full the arena was, but also how loud and intense the fans were as the races were going on.

I don’t know why he’s so surprised – it was an intense meet overall.  A spectacular meet too.  But even in the rush of trying to report to HepsNation about what is going on at the actual meet, I too missed some interesting tidbits from various performances that only added to the intensity of the meet.  I took a look back at the compiled meet results, and this is what I learned overall:

  • Two conference records were broken at the meet:
    • women’s 60m (Harvard’s Danielle Barbian, 7.40)
    • women’s shot put (Harvard’s Nikki Okwelogu, 56-02)
  • Four new events contested at Indoor Heps, resulting in new meet records and all-time meet marks
    • Women’s 500m – Princeton’s Kim Mackay inaugural champion in 1:12.88
    • Women’s 1,000m – Columbia’s Sarah Hardie inaugural champion in 2:48.61
    • Women’s DMR – Yale quartet of Emily Waligurski, Emily Cable, Shannon McDonnell, and Kira Garry inaugural champions in 11:35.47
    • Men’s 200m – Princeton’s Carrington Akosa inaugural champion in 21.87
  • Four conference meet records were reset:
    • women’s 60m,
    • women’s shot put
    • women’s hurdles (Harvard’s Autumne Franklin, 8.41)
    • women’s 4×440 yard relay (Cornell’s Taysia Radoslav, Zena Kolliesuah, Katie Woodford, and Udeme Akpaete; 3:42.03) – note, Lancer Timing keeps a yards-contested record within their database, but we convert the marks, as appropriate, in this website’s database
  • Four new marks that placed the athletes in qualifying position for NCAAs (top 16):
