Princeton Heads to Texas Invitational This Weekend –

Schedule  l  Live Results

The Princeton track & field teams head South to the Texas Invitational this weekend, as the Tigers face off against some of the top teams in nation, including Kentucky and Auburn.

The Tigers are coming off of a weekend in which they hosted the Sam Howell Invitational at Weaver Stadium.

Senior Julia Ratcliffe won the hammer throw for the women’s team. As the top thrower in the East with a 68.05, Ratcliffe will take the weekend off from competition, leaving room for Kennedy O’Dell and Ellen Scott-Young. O’Dell won both the shot put and discus at Sam Howell and is scheduled to triple again this weekend. Senior Elisa Steele won the 400 and freshman Devon Block-Funkhouser won the 400 hurdles and both will tackle those events at Texas. Princeton also enters Ellie Randolph, Maia Craver and Allison Harris in the 100-meter hurdles. Randolph ran the fifth-fastest time in school history in the event last weekend. Harris will double, as she will compete in the pole vault as well.

The Princeton men won six events last weekend. Freshman Joey Daniels ran the 36th best time in the East in the 110-meter hurdles last weekend at Sam Howell. He’ll also take part in the 4×100 relay. Senior Greg Leeper and junior Spencer Long went 1-2 in the 400 hurdles at Sam Howell, and both rank in the top 35 in the East and look to move up the list this weekend. Junior Carrington Akosa, sophomore Charlie Volker and freshman JC Colangelo and Joey McGrath look to challenge themselves in the sprints this weekend against the ranked squads. The Tigers claimed six of the top 10 spots in the 400 last weekend, led by senior Ray Mennin and he’ll take to the oval in Austin. Junior Josh Ingalls, who posted the best collegiate time in the 800 will be one of three Tigers that takes on that event. Junior Noah Kauppila, who ranks 16th in the East in the 1500 looks to improve on his 3:45, along with one of the top 5k runners in the East, freshman Conor Lundy.

There are just three weeks until championship season begins with the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships at Yale on May 6-7.
