The women’s 800m qualifiers needed to be faster than 2:10 to make the finals.  Good timing for Penn’s Taylor Hennig to PR as she ran 2:09.11 to make it as the final qualifier.  Her teammate Cary Celata was the fastest qualifier in 2:07.37, with Columbia’s Brittney Wade also joining her in the sub-2:08 club (2:07.78).  Princeton’s Cecilia Barowski (2:08.94) and Yale’s Shannon McDonnell (2:09.15) were the other heat winners.  The remaining qualifiers were Princeton’s Kim Mackay (2:09.16), Cornell’s Shannon Hugard (2:09.16), and Brown’s Taylor Worthy (2:08.11).  First time out was Indoor Heps 1km champion Sarah Hardie’s 2:09.17.  As Columbia alum Trina Bills said on Twitter: “the classic 2:09 battle for finals #beentheredonethat”.

The women’s 400m hurdles only needed to thin out the field by 3 in order to determine their finalists.  Cornell’s Tasia Radoslav was the only runner under 60 seconds in heat 1, winning in 58.74 (0.01 seconds ahead of her SB).  She proved to be the fastest qualifier of the day, as only two other hurdlers ran sub-60: heat winners from Harvard Jade Miller (58.85) and Autumne Franklin (59.17).  Other qualifiers include Cornell’s Emily Woodford (60.07), Brown’s Alex Stanton (60.43), Harvard’s Jackie Modesett (60.49), and Dartmouth’s Marissa Evans (61.90) and Kathleen Sprout (62.47).

Columbia’s Nadia Eke continues her reign as the Queen of the Sand Pit – she won the long jump by 16 inches with a best leap of 19-11 1/2.  The mark is wind-legal and a new personal best for Eke, and it moves her into the outdoor long jump record books as it is the 10th best leap all-time. In order to score, all of the athletes need to have jumped farther than 18-01.75

Women’s Long Jump Results:
1. Nadia Eke (Columbia) – 19-11.5
2. Sarah Ronde (Princeton) – 18-07
3. Anna Williams (Columbia) – 18-05.75
4. Devinne Miller (Penn) – 18-02.25
5. Allison Morrison (Harvard) – 18-02.25
6. Hillary Holmes (Cornell) – 18-01.85

In the women’s final qualifying event of the day, Cornell’s Udeme Akpaete and Columbia’s Ashley Cunningham both broke into the meet top-10 record books with their heat winning times.  Akpaete won her heat in 23.79 for the 4th fastest in meet history, while Cunningham tied the new 10th fastest time in meet history with her heat winning time of 23.99.  Other qualifiers include Harvard’s Danielle Barbian, Ashley Collinsworth, Christ Scott (24.40); Columbia’s Akua Obeng-Akrofi (24.15), Cornell’s Zena Kolliesuah (24.14), Dartmouth’s Jennifer Meech (24.14).

Total qualifiers for the women for tomorrow: Harvard – 12; Dartmouth – 10; Cornell – 8; Columbia – 7; Penn & Brown – 6; Princeton – 5; Yale 4.

Cornell’s Eve Bishop extended her Ivy dominance in the pole vault today, winning the event in 12-05 1/2 and holding off Princeton’s Allison Harris and Yale’s Catherine Shih (both at 12-03 1/2).  Even though 5 athletes finished with a best height of 11-11 3/4, only three of them made the scoring podium and due to the miss progression, there were no ties among the top 6.

Women’s Pole Vault:
1. Eve Bishop (Cornell) – 12-05 1/2
2. Allison Harris (Princeton) – 12-03 1/2
3. Catherine Shih (Yale) – 12-03 1/2
4. Molly Minnig (Penn) – 11-11 3/4
5. Alexis Bartholomew (Cornell) – 11-11 3/4
6. Kaitlin Mccallum (Dartmouth) – 11-11 3/4

Scores after 3 events for the women: Princeton 27, Columbia 24, Cornell 13, Harvard & Penn 8, Brown & Yale 6, Dartmouth 1

We’re still waiting on the women’s javelin results (which is both done) to wrap up scoring for now, while the heptathlon is still in the shot put at this time.  The women’s 10km at 9pm tonight will wrap up Day 1 women scorings.
