Broadcasting Ivy Indoor Action


Now we have a conference first occurring this weekend, or at least a conference first to my knowledge.

The Ivy League Digital Network will be broadcasting their first indoor track & field meet that is NOT a conference championships.  On Saturday starting at 11am, the ILDN will be broadcasting the Battle for Beantown Challenge from the Al Gordon Indoor Track facility in Boston, Mass.  Harvard will be hosting this meet for the ninth year in a row, while Brown is also scheduled to compete.  Part of this online webstream will include the conclusion of the Harvard Multi-Challenge (which will be Day 2 of the Heptathlon).  Details on how to watch the meet can be found here.

Editor’s aside: I hope this starts a new trend from the Ivy League to broadcast more track meets, especially the historical tri-meets that the Ivies continue to have each year…

Cornell will be trekking south to State College, Pa., to compete at the Penn State Nittany Lion Challenge on Saturday.  The Ashenfelter III Indoor Track is a fast one, so we are expecting some very good sprinting times from this meet.  Heat sheets and live results are available.

Dartmouth will be hosting Maine and Vermont in a tri-meet tomorrow at the Leverone Fieldhouse.  This is one of two tri-meets that Dartmouth will be hosting this indoor season as they will be hosting conference rivals Columbia and Yale later this month (Editor’s note: IDLN – this would be a good thing to broadcast!).  Lancer Timing will be providing live results for this weekend’s competition.

Penn will be making their 2016 debut back in Bethlehem, Pa. as they partake in the Lehigh Angry Bird Invitational.  Penn previously competed at this facility back in December to kick off their indoor season.  Action will start at 11am on Saturday.
