Time for the men to start playing.

Cornell’s Max Hairston got the fastest qualifier in the men’s high hurdles, running 14.15 into a -0.8 m/s headwind to win his heat. His main competition is Harvard’s Jarvis Harris, who won the other heat in 14.20 with a tailwind of +1.4 m/s.  Other qualifiers include Harvard’s Jay Hebert (14.35), Penn’s Ben Bowers (14.52), Princeton’s Greg Caldwell (14.36) & Rob Mohr (14.53), Yale’s Paedyn Gomes (14.54), and Dartmouth’s Alex Frye (14.64).

For the men’s 400m semifinals, the 1st heat managed to be the fastest heat.  Princeton’s Ray Mennin ran a huge PR in the men’s 400m semis to win his heat and take the auto qualifier spot.  His time 47.92 was one of two times under 48 seconds, as the runner up in his heat, Columbia’s Kevin Boyd ran 47.99.  These two and Brown’s Zach Emrich (48.02) passed Yale’s Marc-Andre Alexandre (48.10) – who was the early leader – in the final 50 meters, but all four of them made it to the finals.  The other qualifiers were Penn’s Jeff Wiseman (48.04), Cornell’s Tobenna Attah (48.36) and Cisco Olloqui (48.35), and Harvard’s Matthew Hurst (48.38).

Back to the women briefly – Penn earned 16 points in the women’s javelin throw behind Kelsey Hay’s win in 152-10.  Hay is the defending Outdoor Heps champion and was the only thrower to go farther than 150-feet today.

Cornell’s James Gowans – in his first 1500m this season – ran 3:45.79 for the fastest qualifier to win heat 1.  Penn’s Thomas Awad won heat 2 in a tight finish with a time of 3:49.70.  Other qualifiers included Princeton’s Bradley Paternostro (3:46.20), Columbia’s Rob Napolitano (3:49.87), Cornell’s Ben Rainero (3;46.53), Penn’s Clark Shurtleff (3:50.03), Dartmouth’s Silas Talbot (3:46.59), Brown’s Ned Willig (3:50.08), Yale’s James Randon (3:46.59), and Brown’s Martin Martinez (3:48.74).
