Cornell is looking to regain ground in the 400m final. Michael Smith did his best to help out Cornell in the first heat, holding off Princeton’s Josh Freeman by 1 step to win the heat in 48.55.  Freeman ran 48.72.

But in the fast final, Princeton’s Ray Mennin bolted to the front at the end of the stagger, forcing Cornell’s Tobenna Attah and Brown’s Ryan Kelly to keep up.  Attah made his move in the backstretch on the bell lap but Mennin could not let him fully pass.  Attah dove for the line but Mennin edged him out for the win.  Mennin and Attah both ran sub-48 seconds – a first for any athlete in Barton Hall – with Mennin running 47.96 and Attah in 47.99.
