Flahive Claims Multi Title

Posted: 28 February by Brett Hoover in Uncategorized

pre-har-flahiveHarvard senior Shannon Flahive won the pentathlon with 3,650 points, becoming the first champion from Harvard in the event since Marquita Patterson won in 1982.

Flahive ran the 60m hurdles in 8.69 and the 800m in 2:26.20. She high jumped 5-3 1/4, put the shot 31-11 1/2 and long jumped 17-9.

That makes the day one team scores read like this: 1. Princeton, 43; 2. Cornell, 29 1/2; 3. Dartmouth, 23; 4. Harvard, 20 1/2; 5. Penn, 16; 6. Brown, 11; 7. Yale, 8; 8. Columbia, 4.

We are out… see ya tomorrow.

Chenoweth Charges To Victory

Posted: 28 February by Brett Hoover in Uncategorized

pre-har-chenowethHarvard sophomore Dan Chenoweth made a decisive move around 2,000 meters to run away with the 3,000-meter run title, outlasting a strong kick from Cornell senior Zac Hine. Chenoweth is only the second Crimson runner to win the event since 1971 (Ian Carswell, 1997).

Like distance runners often do, some of the top six finishers got out of the building for a run before we could give out awards, so we will try to get a photo online tomorrow.
