No matter how big of a lead it seems when you get to the final leg of the DMR, the anchors will slow it down to allow all of the other teams to regroup.  That’s what happened in the men’s DMR today as Penn gave the baton to Thomas Awad with the slight edge over Cornell and Princeton.  Ben Rainero and Noah Kauppila were running anchors for their respective teams.  All of the teams in the race regrouped within the first 100m.  The group stayed together until the final few laps when Yale’s James Randon began to push the pace.  On the final lap, Randon had the lead and pulled away from the field but Awad managed to hold on and nip him at the line to help Penn defend their DMR title from last year.  Cornell finished ahead of Princeton – 3rd and 4th respectively – to help narrow the team score gap.

Brown got another event winner in the last 20 minutes as Brown’s O’Sha Williams won her first Heps title in the triple jump. Williams’ distance is the 7th best in meet history, 5th best in conference history, and a new PR. Harvard rookie Gabrielle Thomas did not score in the event, but still ended the day with 3 event wins.

In the women’s DMR, Schmeide gave Yale the early lead at the end of the 1200m leg but a powerful 400m leg by Harvard’s Jackie Modesett gave Harvard a good 10m cushion going into the 800m leg. The lead grew to 5 seconds by the time Courtney Smith got the baton for Harvard. Penn’s Ashley Montgomery and Princeton’s Brighie Leach were even at the final exchange.  Smith extended the lead and went on to win unchallenged.  The winning time was 11:30.85 – new meet record.

Cornell will be getting help from Austin Jamerson in the heptathlon. With one more event to go, Jamerson has over 300 points on Princeton’s Jake Scinto after the completion of the pole vault. Jamerson cleared 14-11 while Scinto only cleared 11-07 1/2. Jamerson has 4787 points to Scinto’s 4400 points. Defending champ Nico Robinson of Dartmouth is not far back in 4346 points, so a good finish in the 1,000m for Robinson could help out Cornell even more in the team scoring. But with the completion of the 1,000m – which was won by Dartmouth’s Matt Sindelar in 3:06.89 – Jamerson got the win with 5396 points over Scinto’s 5105 points.
