Excitement Ascending


It’s officially HepsWeek. Indoor Heps will be returning to Barton Hall for the first time since 2012 and various teams across the conference are getting excited for the meet to begin. Various teams have started to share videos over this past weekend to get HepsNation fans pumped for the upcoming action. I must say, it is working.

In case you missed it, you can still check out what Yale, Brown, and Cornell have released to the public. Some have even shared videos of some of the upsets that happened at the 2012 Indoor Heps, such Brown’s Heidi Caldwell’s edging out Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino for the win in the women’s 5,000m.

We are waiting for other schools to join in on the fun…

But while we wait, we’ll start sharing other things with you, such as event previews and details on how to follow the meet.  We’re still waiting on the final schedule from Ivy League Athletics, but we will share that information once it is available.  UPDATE:  the Indoor Heps schedule is available – you can check it out here.

We will be starting the Indoor Heps event previews later today and continue publishing them throughout the week.  We’ll end the week with projected Indoor Heps scorings based on the updated conference rankings from TFRRS.
