PRINCETON, N.J. (2/12/14) - The Princeton men's track & field team will compete in the annual Harvard-Yale-Princeton meet on Saturday, Feb. 15 at Coxe Cage.

The Tigers have won the annual meet every year since 1989 (Princeton did not compete in 2002, '03, '04), a streak of 22 consecutive wins. Last year Princeton collected 88 points with Harvard second with 59 and Yale third with 23.

At last year's meet at Jadwin Gym, Harvard held the lead through the first seven events. After the triple jump, high jump and 3,000 were scored Princeton took the lead and held it through the next six events.

Princeton claimed nine out of a possible 11 points in both the triple and high jumps.

Princeton went 1-2 in the 3,0000. Jonathan Vitez ran a PR of 8:10.01 to win the event while Sam Pons posted a time of 8:12.16.

Tom Hopkins won the long jump and 400. In the long jump, Hopkins reached 7.25 on his second attempt while McLean was third at 7.17 to give Princeton seven points in the event. Hopkins then claimed the win on the track, as the only sprinter to run the 400 in under 50 seconds at 48.95.

Princeton got eight out of a possible 11 in the 1,000. Michael Williams ran 2:28.83 for the win. Nathan Mathabane and Jamie Fehrnstrom were third and fourth.

The Tigers went 1-2-4 in the 60-meter hurdles. Gregory Caldwell clocked 8.10 for the win, while Sheldon hit 8.17 for second place and Rob Mohr was fourth at 8.24.

In the 60, Dre Nelson picked up the win sprinting to 6.84 while John Hill was third at 6.88.

The Tigers claimed first and third in both the 500 and 800. Bradley Paternostro won the 500 at 1:05.90 with Tom Scott third at 1:06.85. Russell Dinkins placed first in the 800 at 1:53.42 with Brian Poirier third at 1:56.59.
