What do you mean it’s “Relays” weekend? Have they moved up the Penn Relays?
No – we don’t mean the Penn Relays. We still have a few more weeks before that festival begins. Instead, we are referring to other meets that have the word “Relays” in their name that HepsNation will be competing in this weekend.
For example, the Texas Relays, Florida Relays, and Colonial Relays.
Select field eventers and multi-eventers – such as Adam Bragg, Serena Graf, Madison Hansen, Kelsey Hay, Noah Kennedy-White, Kerry Krause, Sam Mattis, Taylor Morgan, and Lisa Sesnik-Clee – will be heading out to the home of the Longhorns. The heptathlon will be starting Day 2 action later today – follow all of the results through the Texas Relays live results website. You can also watch the meet online through ESPN or through Flotrack if you have FlotrackPro account.
Fuller teams from Harvard, Penn, and Princeton will head to Gainesville, FL to participate in the Florida Relays that start today. Live results and online ESPN webstreaming are available for this meet as well.
Meanwhile, Columbia will be the lone Ivy team at the Colonial Relays, hosted by the College of William & Mary in Virginia. There will be limited action today – the hammer throw and 3,000m championship events for both genders – so you can have some time to check out the performance listings. Live results will be available through HalfMile Timing. William & Mary athletics will be providing a webstream of the Saturday action that starts at 1:15pm ET but it will focus on the relay championship races (full schedule is available here).
But not all of the weekend action will be at Relay meets. Check out the information below on who will be where and how you can follow them.
Distance runners from Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Hepsnation alumni will head out to California to run at the Stanford Invitational. This meet has become one of the to-go locations for long-distance Regional qualifiers due to the stacked collegiate/professional fields. Heat sheets are available. According to the schedule, it looks like the bulk of the Ivy racing will be on Friday night – so tune in to Flotrack if you want to catch the action through a webstream or you can follow your favorite school on social media for updates. Otherwise, you can catch the live results here.
Brown will be going to High Point, NC for the VertKlasse Meeting hosted by High Point University. The meet will start on Friday afternoon and go into Saturday (schedule here). There will be a live video of the Saturday events starting at 1pm and live results are available through Flash Results.
Cornell will compete in California again to wrap up their Spring Break trip. This weekend, they will be in Los Angeles for the Bruin Legends of Track & Field Invitational and Distance Carnival. The Distance Carnival will take place on Friday night only (entries here) while the Legends Invitational will run both Friday and Saturday (entries here). Live results will be available through the Finished Results app.
Dartmouth will head to Tufts University for the Snowflake Invitational on Saturday. According to Tufts’ website, Brown is also scheduled to participate. The meet is set to start at 10am.
Princeton will be sending the remainder of their team to Muhlenburg College for the Muhlenburg Invitational on Saturday. Action starts at 10am.
Hopefully this will easily fill your track & field quota for the weekend.
