Joel Karacozoff (Princeton), Bob Belden (Cornell), Erik Roneker (Cornell), Alex Pessala (Princeton), Craig Pearce (Princeton), David Irving (Dartmouth). Princeton senior Alex Pessala came closer to knocking off a 30-year-old record than anyone else has as he won the weight throw with a mark of 69-1 1/2. That is the second-best mark all-time at Heps, behind Dartmouth’s Ed Kania, who tossed the 35-pound implement 70-5 in 1979. It was also the third win in Pessala’s career, which matches Navy’s Ted Bregar and ends one behind Josh McCaughey, who won four titles from 2001-04 for his Tigers.
