Are we ready to return to indoor action?
Six of the eight schools will be competing this weekend after having nearly a month off, so these athletes are itching to get back to competition. Some of the meets have a bit of history behind them, while others will provide insight into what we could see at Indoor Heps at the end of February.
Princeton will be participating in two scoring meets this weekend. The Lady Tigers will be hosting their annual Tri-Meet at Jadwin Gym today starting at 5pm, where local schools St. John’s and St. Joseph’s will participate. Live results will be available through Leone Timing (start lists are available as of 8am). Meanwhile, the men will be travelling to Annapolis, Md., for the annual Navy-Princeton dual meet on Saturday for a start of 11am. This will be the 45th time this dual meet will be contested, as the series is a even 22-22 record between the two schools. With Navy considered one of the teams to beat in the Patriot League, this meet will be a good battle among the best of the Ivy and Patriot Leagues.
Up in Hanover, it is the 47th Dartmouth Relays weekend at the Leverone Field House. The Big Green will be hosting some of the fastest high schoolers in the New England region for most of the weekend, but the collegiate action will commence on Sunday at 8:30am and is expected to last all day. Schedule and live results will be available through Lancer Timing.
Meanwhile, we will get some Indoor Heps head-to-head matchups. Brown will be travelling to New Haven for the Yale Collegiate Invitational on Saturday at 9am. Harvard will be trekking to Ithaca to participate in Cornell’s Southern Tier Invitational on Friday 11am (live results with start lists through Leone Timing). Both meets are non-scoring meets, but it will be interesting to see if there conference competition will add to the performance intensities.
Also, we will have one lone HepsNation member travelling to Europe – Brown rookie Carleen Jeffers will be racing as a part of the Team USA Junior Women’s team at the Great Edinburgh XC Race in Scotland on Saturday. You can follow the race online through usatf.tv starting at 8am ET.
For those to are able to attend any of these meets – feel free to share videos, pictures, or tidbits with the rest of HepsNation on Facebook or Twitter, or with us through email, and we will share on accordingly.
