Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Teams Place Second in Ivy Heps

It is not often that you host the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships as the favorites to win over a longtime rival defending its title. Yet, coming into this weekend, this was exactly the case with the Cornell men’s track and field team, competing for a league crown in Barton Hall in Ithaca, looking to knock off a solid Princeton team. But as Sunday began to wind down, it became clear that this storybook ending to the indoor season was not to be. Instead Cornell finished second in the Ivy League with 142 points, trailing only Princeton and its 165 point first place total. The women’s team also finished second, scoring a point total of 123.50 only bested by Harvard’s 136.50.

CROSS COUNTRY | Red Beats Nationally Ranked Teams to Earn Third Place in Regionals

In what could be its last meet of the season, the men’s cross country team was able to come up big in NCAA Regionals. The team finished in third place, above nationally ranked squads from Columbia and Providence, and missed out qualifying as a team for NCAA Championships by only a couple points. Despite missing out on a Top-2 finish, which would automatically place the Red in the NCAA Championship, Cornell still has a chance to earn a right to compete at the event as a team. Seniors Ben Rainero ad Brian Eimstad, who were able to qualify for the NCAA National Championship with their results from last Friday, continued their success. Rainero placed fifth while Eimstad was able to push for a 14th place finish.
