Day 1 Results

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (2/23/13) - Senior Tory Worthen won her seventh consecutive Ivy League Heptagonal pole vault title as the 2013 Ivy League Indoor Heptagonal got underway at Harvard today, Feb. 23.

The Tigers are in third place with 26.50 points after five events have been scored. Cornell is in first with 35 and Harvard is second with 29. Dartmouth and Columbia have 22 points each, followed by Brown with 12.50, and Yale and Penn with four each.

Worthen is on track to become the first eight-time Heps champion in Princeton women's track history. Only six athletes have accomplished the feat in Ivy League History. Tora Harris '02 swept the high jump during his career with the Princeton men's team. No athlete has ever swept the pole vault, for either gender.

Worthen cleared 4.00 (13-1.50) on her first attempt to win the event. Sydnie Leroy tried and failed at clearing 4.00 three times. Senior Lauren Tauscher finished in fifth place in the event clearing 3.70 (12-1.50), as the duo earned 11.5 points towards the team score.

Freshman Julia Ratcliffe was the runner-up in the weight throw as both she and Harvard's Adabelle Ekechukwu surpassed the previous meet record. Ratcliffe reached 18.70 (61-4.25) on her fifth attempt but Ekechukwu's 20.83 (68-4.25) pushed her into first.

Senior Abby Levene and sophomore Jackie Nicholas were scorers in the 5,000. Levene ran a 16:25.98 for fourth place and Nicholas a 16:33.84 for fifth place, for six points.

Junior Beth McKenna earned a point for the Tigers with a sixth-place finish in the heptathlon. She collected 3505 points.

Advancing to tomorrow's final in the mile are seniors Greta Feldman, Alexis Mikaelian and Mel Newbery. Feldman also qualified for the 800 final, along with senior Kristin Smoot and junior Kacie O'Neil.

Sophomore Cecilia Barowski and senior Joie Hand will compete in the final of the 400. Barwoski clocked the best time of the 22 competitors in the preliminaries at 55.29. She also qualified for the finals of the 200, as did senior Erin Guty

The meet continues at 11 a.m., on Sunday with the triple jump and shot put.
