Will Geiken and the Crimson will compete at the Terrier Classic Friday and Saturday (Tim O'Dowd).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard indoor track and field team will head across town this weekend to compete in the John Thomas Terrier Classic hosted by Boston University Friday, Jan. 30 – Saturday, Jan. 31 at the BU Track and Tennis Center.
This weekend's event will mark the second time during the 2014-15 season that Harvard has competed at BU. At the BU Season Opener on December 6, the Crimson won four events and broke two school records.
Most recently, the Crimson sent a small contingent of student-athletes to New Mexico to compete in the Lobo Collegiate Invitational. Danielle Barbian shined on the track, matching her Ivy League record of 7.44 in the 60 meter dash, while in the field, Nikki Okwelogu won the women's shot put and Ben Glauser captured the men's weight throw.
Through the first five meets of the season, the Crimson have won 18 individual events, three relays, broken seven school records and posted numerous top-10 all-time performances. As a team, the Crimson women were victorious at the Beantown Challenge, with the men coming in second. Both squads posted fourth-place finishes at the Dartmouth Relays.
The Crimson head into February with four meets left on the schedule, three of which will take place at the Gordon Indoor Track. Harvard will host the Crimson Elite Meet on Friday, Feb. 6, with the H-Y-P slated for February 14 and the Ivy League Championships from February 28 – March 1. The Crimson's only meet outside of its home confines will be another visit to the BU Track and Tennis Center on Saturday, Feb. 7 for the Scarlet and White Invitational.
