The men’s decathlon 1500m was the last event on the track, and for the first time in who knows how long, the team title came down to this race.  The men are already dead, but can Princeton or Cornell get enough energy together to win the team title?

Princeton’s Stephen Soerens just needed to make sure that he finished his 1500m leg ahead of Cornell’s Austin Jamerson as Soerens had a comfortable 160 point lead going into this run.  But in the last 50m, Soerens found his final gear and sped by Brown’s Peter Rhodes to claim the 1500m leg win in 4:29.75 and secure the team title win for the Tigers.  Soerens won the overall event in 7319 points.  Jamerson was the runner up in 7070, while Rhodes was third in 7008.

Congrats to all student-athletes!
