For Willy Wood, the Columbia men’s team title at the Heps Cross Country Championships was kind of a surprise, maybe. But there was little surprise on the women’s side as Abbey D’Agostino powered her Dartmouth Big Green to the team championship and, barring something unexpected, a team bid to the NCAAs.

Boo. Happy Halloween everyone! Fortunately, the scares will not last into this weekend. According to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there is now no chance of rain for Heps XC on Saturday but there will be some rain coming through tonight and tomorrow. Today: A slight chance of showers after 10am. Cloudy, with a [...]
Here is a tale between two teams and their journeys this season. One team came into the cross country season with a pre-season ranking of 10th, due to the long-distance success the team has had the previous two years within the Ivy League conference and on the national scene. This team was the pre-season favorite [...]
Both Penn and Yale are looking to some younger runners to improve their team finishes from last year. Yale and Penn finished 6th and 7th, respectively, last year in the team race. And unfortunately, neither team has any returning athletes who finished in the top 25 last year. The Penn Quakers are looking to their [...]
Columbia and #23 Princeton women have the talent and spread that they could finish anywhere in the top 5 spots of this conference. That is how deep this conference has become in recent years. Columbia has Waverly Neer (Russiaville, Ind.) back in full force this season after missing last year due to an injury. Back [...]
Not only is HepsTrack expecting a tight race for the team championship, but also for a spot on the podium. The #21 Harvard and Dartmouth men have raced head-to-head twice, but yielded different results each time. At the Paul Short Invitational, Harvard senior James Leakos (Saskatoon, Sask.) won the individual title in the Gold Race. [...]
The Penn has three of their 2012 Heps XC team back for the 2013 season. Sophomore Elyssia Gensib (Princeton, N.J.), senior Kersie Jhavala (Cary, N.C.) and senior Chelsea Delaney (Freehold, N.J.) have guided the young squad throughout the season. Gensib and freshman Cleo Whiting (Delta, Colo.) have been the front of their team this season. [...]
The setup for the men’s team title is very similar to last year. Coming into Heps XC, both #10 Columbia and #15 Princeton are nationally ranked due to their strong talents and great performance record this year. Columbia earned their highest national ranking in school history after winning the Notre Dame XC Invitational at the [...]
Yes, in this write-up, we are focusing on the Harvard and Yale women. No, we will not be discussing the historic rivalry; however, the historic dual is probably the best head-to-head matchup analysis we have in the conference now as there is no any outside influences from other parties. Back in the first week of [...]
We’re changing up our preview presentation for this week. Now, you’ll get two for the price of one for each preview entry. Both Cornell and Brown men squads are going to have a lot of fresh faces on their Heps XC squads this year, as both teams have either lost runners due to graduation or [...]

It’s our favorite time of the fall season again – HepsWeek XC 2013. For the third year in a row, Princeton will be hosting the championship meet at their West Windsor Fields. The long term forecast is showing a 40% chance of rain for Saturday, but the temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s. [...]
Heps Track is looking for some good talent to further the cause.
Julia Ratcliffe fired off five hammer throws that were beyond the Championship record and then she donned her Tiger suit.
To follow Heps this year, it really is time for you to join the Twitterverse.
Here’s some yummy entry information.
People are migrating to Princeton over the course of the next 24 hours, whether it be bus, train, or front of a truck. And lucky for us, they are sharing their journeys and thoughts via Twitter. Princeton has been busy getting their Weaver Stadium set up and working, as evident by the scoreboard image above: [...]
If there is a race brewing that we want to see, it is Princeton’s Greta Feldman pushing Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino in the 1,500!
Will Princeton be celebrating at the conclusion of the distance races this time around?
Uju Ofoche is looking for her fifth straight Heps long jump crown as her Columbia Lions are poised to claim a gaggle of points in the long and triple leaps.
Harvard’s Nico Weiler has taken the pole vault to new heights, but last year took it to no height. That is a scary concept for the coaches from Princeton.
Just where will Abbey D’Agostino run at Heps — the 1500, the 3k and/or the 5k? What events she shall enter, make sure you are at the Weav to watch.
Will Princeton’s Peter Callahan make his first Outdoor Heps appearance since his freshman year or will injury again sideline him?
