Men’s Status Going Into Philly

ht-mozia-ivy

With the start of the 2015 Outdoor Heps Championships being less than 6 days away, it’s time for us to see how the teams stack up.  We’re not mind readers, but boy, this week we wish we could as it would really assist us in predicting the outcome of Outdoor Heps.

Until we manage to learn the magic of mind-reading, we will have to use the performance listings and weigh any potential rumors in the fandom on how the meet will turn out.

First up, we will take a look at the men.  We show the rankings as listed on the Track and Field Results Reporting System database, as well as any wind-readings if any were recorded.  Like we did at Halfway-Heps in early April, we scored the top 10 lists as if they were the Heps finals (10-8-6-4-2-1).  We did not break any ties.  We did not remove any names if they were going to do interesting doubles or triples.  We will show the team scoring based on this top 10 and compare them to what we saw at Halfway Heps.

Want to speculate?  There’s a special thread on Letsrun.com that focuses on Ivy League track and field/cross country where it is free to post.  There’s usually some very informed analysis on the events and championship in this thread, so I highly recommend you at least read it.  Some possible discussion: will Cornell’s Stephen Mozia become the fourth Ivy man to win four outdoor shot put titles?  He’s the odds-on favorite, but can he do it?  Or will Penn’s Thomas Awad go for both the 1,500m and 5,000m?  He has the top conference times in both right now.  And how representative are all of those wind-aided times in the sprints?  Who REALLY is going to take home the sprinting titles?

Team Rankings as of 5/2/15 (Halfway Heps ranking and points differential)

1 – Cornell, 129 (1st/+4 points)
2 – Princeton, 126 (2nd/+22 points)
