With the Ivy League Heptagonal Track & Field Championships returning to Weaver Stadium this weekend, Princeton seniors Russell Dinkins and Alexis Mikaelian join the latest edition of TigerCast.

Dinkins, who was just announced as one of nine recipients of the Spirit of Princeton Award, will try to win his third straight Outdoor Heps team title during the two-day competition this weekend. Dinkins, who was part of Princeton's NCAA champion Distance Medley Relay during the winter, is one of Princeton's top mid-distance runners and could play a key role in the relays this weekend.

Mikaelian will have a similar role for the women, as she is also a top mid-distance performer. She has been part of six Ivy League championship 4x800 relays (four indoor, two outdoor), and she was an NCAA Regional qualifier in the 1500 last year. She is also coming off a strong performance at the Penn Relays, though she wants this weekend to be even more memorable.

TigerCast, presented by PNC Bank, is the official podcast of Princeton Athletics. Previous episodes of TigerCast can be downloaded for free anytime at GoPrincetonTigers.com.
