Leung, Cabral Lead Tigers Into Nationals

Posted: 13 November by Brett Hoover in Uncategorized

The Princeton men have won the Mid-Atlantic Regional in University Park, Pa., scoring 53 points, followed by Villanova (61), Georgetown (78) and Penn State (99) as Brian Leung and Donn Cabral took fourth and fifth respectively, each with the same time of 30:11. With that performance, the Tigers will compete in the NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., a week from Monday.

Yet another Tiger, Mark Amirault, finished ninth, just 11 seconds behind his teammates.

The Princeton women finished fourth in the Mid-Atlantic behind Villanova (29), Georgetown (40) and Penn State (91). The Tigers’ 102 points was far ahead of fifth-place West Virginia (152). Heps champion Alex Banfich was fourth individually for the Orange and Black in 20:04 while Sarah Cummings was 13th and Ashley Higginson 16th.

In the Northeast Regional in Madison, Conn., Harvard senior Dan Chenoweth was the top Ivy finisher, taking third place in 29:51.2, less than 15 seconds behind winner Leonard Korir of Iona. Syracuse (56) and Iona (63) easily claimed the automatic berths to the NCAA Championships while all six Heps teams were among the top 12. Dartmouth (138) and Columbia (146) had a great battle as the first Ivy team followed by Cornell and Brown. Yale’s Jeff Perrella (eighth) and Columbia’s Tom Poland (ninth) joined Chenoweth in the top 10 as Perrella nails down a spot in the Championship.

On the women’s side in the Northeast, Columbia sophomore Caroline McDonough finished fifth and led her Lions to a fifth-place finish with a time of 20:12.6. She was the only Heps runner among the top 10. The team battle was a close one all around as Syracuse (78) and Stony Brook (83) edged out Providence (87) and Boston College (92) for the automatic berths. Columbia in fifth was just three points ahead of Ivy rival Cornell, 206-209, as Big Red rookie Devin McMahon was 11th overall.

Romaniw Advances on Home Soil

Anthony Romaniw, running for and in his native Canada, has qualified to the next round of the 800-meter run at the IAAF World Juniors in Moncton, finishing fourth in his heat in 1:51.00.

The rising Dartmouth sophomore was within four-tenths of a second of heat winner Pierre-Ambroise Bosse of France. American and University of Virginia star Robby Andrews was second with Russian Vasilly Sadilov in third.

Romaniw will next run in the semifinals on Saturday at 1:10 pm. He and Princeton hammer thrower Conor McCullough are the last Ivy Leaguers competing. McCullough is throwing in the qualifier right now and we should have information to share soon.

Closing With A Furey

Posted: 27 June by Brett Hoover in Uncategorized

What an afternoon for the Ivy League at the U.S. Outdoor Nationals at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa. In a short span, Heps had four athletes earn medals in field events and two other runners finish among the top seven in a national final.

One former Leaguer — Dartmouth javelin thrower Sean Furey — claimed a national title with a throw of 262-0. He actually had some stiff competition from a rising senior from Brown, NCAA champion Craig Kinsley, who threw a career-best 256-3 for third place in the event.

“There were a lot of people with big PRs,” said Furey. “It was an interesting competition. My best throw was my last throw. My first throw was only six centimeters in difference. I came out and put a mark out there. I was technically trying to force it out there for a bit, I couldn’t quite seal the deal. Everyone was in a tight bunch the whole time. It was very good competition.”

Eight-time Heps high jump champion Tora Harris of Princeton took second with a clearance of 7-5. The winner, Jesse Williams of Nike, cleared the same height, but with fewer misses. Ageless wonder Adam Nelson, a 1996 graduate of Dartmouth, finished third in the shot put with a season-best 68-4 1/2.

Cornell graduate Morgan Uceny was fifth in the 800-meter (2:00.86) while Princeton rising junior Donn Cabral was seventh in the steeplechase in 8:37.35. Cabral was the NCAA runnerup in that event and is already among the all-great steeplers in League history.

In all, four Ivy Leaguers captured national titles in Des Moines. Brown grad Anna Pierce (1,500-meter run) and Furey were joined by national junior champions Conor McCullough (hammer throw) and Pete Callahan (1,500-meter run), both of Princeton.
