Update: Penn State Nationals results now added!

Did we learn anything from the Indiana State Pre-Nationals Invitational in Terre Haute, Ind., on Saturday? Maybe not. But we have gotten further confirmation that the individual Heps Championship battle between Harvard’s Dan Chenoweth and Princeton’s Donn Cabral might just be a classic.

Chenoweth, the defending Heps champion, chased Liberty superstar Sam Chelanga around and over the 8,000-meter course, taking third in the White race in 23:32.7. Cabral was sixth in the Blue race, running 23:36.1 on the heels of three strong runners from the nation’s rop team, Stanford.

Those performances came amidst a remarkable field which included 15 of the nation’s top 25 programs. And Cabral’s team lived up to its national ranking (12th) with a fifth-place performance in its race. Brian Leung was 16th overall while Mark Amirault was 32nd. In Harvard’s race, the Columbia Lions actually beat the Crimson with a balanced effort to finish ninth.

One the women’s side, Princeton had two top-10 finishers in the Blue race as Alex Banfich was second in 20:08.3, about five seconds behind winner Risper Kimaiyo of UTEP in the 6,000-meter trek. Tiger senior Ashley Higginson was eighth as her Tigers took seventh overall. Harvard and Columbia were both 16th in their respective races.

Former Harvard star Chas Gillespie, now running for William & Mary as a graduate student, was eighth in the men’s Blue race, seven seconds behind Cabral. For full results, please click here.
