Princeton’s track and field teams showed their abilities two weekends ago at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships. The men’s team finished first of eight teams and the women’s team finished sixth of the eight teams, creating much excitement for the upcoming outdoor season. Here’s the recap.

For now, the Tigers have their work cut out for them as they are projected to finish sixth in the Ivy League by the coaches poll. But at least one person disagrees.
“Personally, I don’t agree with the low placement for Princeton,” Rece Davis said. “I think this team has a lot of weapons and I think many people will be surprised with how well they do this year.”

“We aren't super interested in waiting for the future; we are excited to see what we can do in the now,“ said Head Coach Paul Rassam after the race.
