Where the Women Stand

bp-franklin-hurdles

The Indoor Heps Championships are only 3 weekends away, and before we can even begin our legendary HepsWeek coverage, there will be plenty of action taking place at indoor facilities all around the country.  But we always wonder “how is the conference looking as we enter this high octane portion of the season?”

And so, we present to you, our “Halfway Heps” snapshot.  We’ve did the men’s snapshot earlier today, so now it’s time to focus on the women.

It should be noted that two of the 2015 Indoor Heps Champions will not be returning this season – Princeton’s Megan Curham (who will be racing the USATF Marathon Trials on February 14th) and Julia Ratcliffe (who is training for the Summer Olympics in her specialty – the hammer throw).

I have tallied up the scores for this “Halfway Heps” meet, based on the event rankings as seen on the Track and Field Results Reporting System website thru this past weekend (which has converted a lot of marks to sea-level, banked 200m track equivalents – notes on which marks are converted and their original performances are included).  Using the converted marks does make a bit of a difference in the scoring projections, as many marks between the 200m and 5,000m races were done on flat tracks at Barton Hall and Leverone Field House.  Since Indoor Heps will be held at Barton Hall this year, we show the original flat marks for comparison, but the scoring is all based on the converted results.

Heps scoring is for the top 6 finishers in an event (10-8-6-4-2-1). I included all events, including thin rankings for the 5,000m and relays, and I did not even try to guess if the doubles shown in these rankings would come to fruition. Also behind the cut are the top-10 performances in the conference to date, where I used the top-6 results for the scoring.  We have also noted any previous champions, record marks, or nationally ranked performances.

And so, the results of the “Halfway Heps” and the performance listings are…
