Junior Evan Weinstock (Las Vegas, NV) led the way as the Brown men's track and field program earned fourth place this weekend at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships at Harvard University with 58 points, the team's highest finish since 2006. Weinstock, a biology concentrator, took first place in the heptathlon with 5296 points, earning first team All-Ivy honors and setting a new school record with his personal best performance.
"Finishing in the top half of the league was a big goal for us coming in, and it was very gratifying to realize that goal," said interim director of track and field Tim Springfield. "I knew we were going to have a good day when Rhodes and Weinstein started us off with great performances in the Heptathlon 60m hurdles. They were ready to compete and set a tone for us early. Finishing one-two in the event was tremendous. I was extremely proud of their efforts throughout the seven events."
The Ivy League Heptagonal Championships marked the end of the regular indoor season for the Brown squad, but part of the team will compete next weekend at Notre Dame in the Alex Wilson Invitational and at the IC4A Championships at Boston University.
