Noticing that a number of freshmen were among the Ivy’s top sprinters and jumpers, the staff here at HepsTrack.com went into deep research mode — which means that a certain puppy didn’t get her walk in until 8:30 am.

The results confirmed our suspicions. The class with the most spots among the top 10 in the League? FRESHMEN. That’s thanks to a wide lead from the men’s Class of 2014, which is holding down 53 of the spots, compared to the second-place junior class total of 41. Among the women, the junior class leads (with 45) by a much narrower margin.

Here’s the total class breakdown of top 10s: Overall — 1. Freshmen, 93; 2. Juniors, 86; 3. Sophomores, 76; 4. Seniors, 67. Men — 1. Freshmen, 53; 2. Juniors, 41; 3. Sophomores, 36; 4. Seniors, 32. Women — 1. Juniors, 45; 2. Freshmen & Sophomores, 40; 4. Seniors, 35.

All that said, freshmen hold the top spot in just five events total — Cornell’s Chris Bain (60m), Penn’s Maalik Reynolds (HJ), Princeton’s Damon McLean (TJ), Columbia’s Tara Richmond (HJ) and Penn’s Christine Cohick (5k).
