HANOVER, N.H. (3/2/14) – The Princeton women’s track & field team finished fourth at the 2014 Ivy League Indoor Heptagonal Championships at Dartmouth this afternoon.

Sophomore Inka Busack finished in second place in the high jump. The top three high jumpers all cleared 1.73 (5-8), but based on Busack clearing the height on her second attempt gave her second place, ahead of Harvard’s Raegan Nizdil. Classmate Taylor Morgan was fifth at 1.70 (5-7).

Despite getting 12 points in the event, Princeton fell back one place into fourth after high jump and the Tigers would remain there throughout the meet.

Two more runners-up came in the field events with senior Imani Oliver in the triple jump and sophomore Julia Ratcliffe in the weight throw.

Ratcliffe took second in the weight for the second straight season. She threw to 19.13 (62-9.25) on her fourth attempt. Four fouls wouldn’t allow her to catch Harvard’s Adabelle Ekechukwu’s 20.81.
