HepsTrack Announces Post Season Honors
HepsTrack has announced the HepsTrack Indoor Athletes of the Year, on its Web site Tuesday, March 13. Junior Peter Callahan was named the Men's Track Athlete of the Season, Conor McCullough has been named the Men's Field Athlete of the Season and Tory Worthen was named the Female Field Athlete of the the Year.
Below are excerpts from HepsTrack.comMale Track Athlete of the Season: Princeton’s Peter Callahan. Callahan broke the heralded 4-minute mile mark not just once, but twice this season. His fastest time, 3:58.76, is the third-best in conference history. He also became the first person to break 1:50 for 800 meters in Barton Hall at Indoor Heps before running a 4:01 DMR anchor. Callahan earned his first All-American honor this past weekend by finishing sixth in the NCAA mile championships.
Male Field Athlete of the Season: Princeton’s Conor McCullough. McCullough’s throw of 76-1 from the annual Harvard-Yale-Princeton tri-meet not only set a new conference record, but it is also the No. 1 throw in the country. Even McCullough’s Heps’ winning throw of 75-3 1/4 (which is a new Heps championship record) would have won NCAAs this past weekend.
Female Field Athlete of the Season: Princeton’s Tory Worthen. Will Worthen ever lose a title at Heps? So far, she is five-for-five in her career, capturing the pole vault crown at each Championship. This year she won the Indoor title by breaking the meet record with a clearance of 13-6 1/4. The next question is: will Worthen become the first Ivy Leaguer to clear 14 feet in the vault? We aren’t betting against her.
