Where Are The Women At?

da-w-middist14

We are only five weekends away before all of the Ivies congregate in Philadelphia to determine who is the best in the conference.  Even though we still have a few more weeks of competition left before the championship season begins, we have enough data to take our first look at the conference performance listings for the 2015 outdoor season.  Not all of the heavy hitters have competed yet, but it gives us something to look forward to these next few weeks.

Like indoors, I have calculated out hypothetical “halfway-Heps” scores for the women’s portion of the meet, based on the event rankings as seen on the Track and Field Results Reporting System website (don’t worry, the men will be posted later this week).  Unlike the indoor rankings, there aren’t any conversions BUT the rankings do not discriminate between wind-legal or wind-assisted performances.  For this performance listing presentation, I’ve added in the wind readings for all of the 100m, 200m, high hurdles, and horizontal jump performances, just so we can have an idea on what some of these times mean.  I’ve also noted previous conference champions, regional or national rankings, and any other interesting tidbit regarding the performance or athlete.

Heps scoring is for the top 6 finishers in an event (10-8-6-4-2-1).  I included all events, including thin rankings for the 10,000m, relays, and heptathlon, and I did not even try to guess if the doubles shown in these rankings would come to fruition.  Also behind the cut are the top-10 performances in the conference to date, where I used the top-6 results for the scoring.

And so, the results of the “Halfway-Heps” and the performance listings are…

Halfway-Heps Results – Women
Cornell – 129
Harvard – 125
Princeton – 82
Brown – 72
Dartmouth – 55.5
Penn – 52.5
Columbia – 48
Yale – 31
