Track Continues to Dominate at Indoor Heps

The Ancient Eight came together this past weekend to redefine the age-old moniker, “Ivy League,” at the Gordon Track in Cambridge, Mass. At the most important track meet of the season, the Indoor Heptagonals, both Red squads flew by their Ivy counterparts in dominating fashion.
On the women’s side, the Most Outstanding Performer went to track phenom senior Jeomi Maduka, who is now tied for the most individual Indoor Heps championships with 10. Maduka broke three meet records in the triple jump, long jump and 200 m, with measurements and times of 43-10 1/2 ft., 20-6 1/2 ft. and 24.51 s. Her measurements in the triple and long jump were both NCAA autoqualifiers.

Men’s and Women’s Track Travel to Harvard for Heps

The men’s and women’s track and field teams will travel to Harvard over the weekend for the Heptagonal Championships — “Definitely the biggest meet of the year from a team standpoint,” according to senior co-captain Andrew Miller. “Everything that we’ve done so far has been working towards this meet and the next two weeks.”
On the men’s side, the Red has won four of the last six Ivy League titles and enters this year’s competition fresh off a historic performance in 2008. A year ago, Cornell outpaced second place Princeton en route to a meet-record 205 points.

Tigers Top Both Men and Women at Heps

Despite valiant efforts by the cross country teams, the Red was no match for the Princeton Tigers this weekend. Cornell’s men’s and women’s teams both placed in the top half of the Ivy League standings, but neither was able to match the Tigers at the Heptagonal Championships in New York City on Friday.
On the men’s side, the Red slipped one spot from its ranking last year and finished behind Princeton and Columbia. The Tigers won the Ivy League crown for the second straight year, tallying 58 points. Columbia finished just behind Princeton with 61 points. The Red was third with 75.
“We were hoping for a higher finish, but the other two teams in front of us ran great races,” said senior Zac Hine. “It wasn’t what we wanted, but we ran as hard as we could.”
