We can now confirm – Harvard’s Nikki Okwelogu officially broke the meet AND conference record in the women’s shot put, throwing 56-10 to win the event (although we believe she broke the mark on an earlier throw).  Okwelogu won this event last year as well, and the previous conference best mark was 55-0.75 that Okwelogu threw earlier this year.  Brown scored 12 points in this event behind frosh Josie Natrasevschi (2nd – 46-07.25) and Michelle Bazile (4th – 45-07.75)

On to some of the longer sprints.

In what we thought was going to be a Cornell 1-2-3 sweep in the women’s 400m ended up being near an upset.  Cornell’s Udeme Akpaete was in front by 5m at the end of the final turn, but in the last 100m, Princeton’s Jasmine Blocker moved from 5th into 2nd but needed more room to overtake Akpaete.  Akpaete won her first outdoor title with a great time of 53.17, while Blocker got a huge PR of 53.60 for second.  Akpaete and Blocker are now ranked 4th and 6th in the all-time record listings for this event.

Who else made it three-titles-in-a-row?  Penn’s Sam Mattis.  The junior won the discus with a new meet record of 202-07, holding off his conference rival Stephen Mozia of Cornell by almost 2 feet (200-09). Mattis and Mozia were the only men to go over 200 feet this season and are the top 2 discus throwers in conference history going into this meet.  This was the first time 200-ft was ever broken at a Heps in this event.

Men’s Discus Throw:

1. Sam Mattis (Penn) – 202-07

2. Stephen Mozia (Cornell) – 200-09

Cornell’s Tobenna Attah might have been wishing the race was 300m as he led the men’s 400m final at the final turn, but Yale’s Marc-Andre Alexandre (who was a time qualifier for today’s final and in lane 2) passed Attah with 80m to go and finished much stronger than yesterday.  Alexandre earned his first outdoor title in 47.29, while Attah held on for 2nd in 47.88.
