PRINCETON, N.J. (4/18/14) – The Princeton freshmen were in the spotlight on Friday’s portion of the Larry Ellis Invitational at Weaver Stadium.

Freshman Megan Curham was the runner-up in the final event of the night, the 5,000. She was thisclose to finishing in less than 16 with a PR of 16:00.71. Her time was the top collegiate time. She was right behind the professional Emily Sisson, known for her speedy 5k races. Curham's time is the second-best time in Princeton history, behind Alex Banfich's 16:00.40 from 2010.

It was like she never left. Ashley Higginson ’11 came back to Princeton and dominated the steeplechase winning in 9:35.72. Her time was more than 10 seconds faster than any of the other competitor, and was 1.23 off her PR of 9:34.49.
