Brown at a Glance
The men's team placed sixth at the Ivy Championship last season, while Princeton claimed the team championship for the second straight season.
Junior Brian Pfaff and Tosin Oyewole will lead the sprinters this time around, after the duo most recently posted top-ten program finishes at the BU Valentine Invitational, while fellow junior Max Haensel has logged a series of impressive finishes in the middle distance events throughout the winter.
Also on the track, Brown will turn to Martin Martinez and Stephen Bourguet to lead the distance group this weekend. In the field, sophomore Owen Russell enters Heps with the third-best weight throw mark in the league this season, while veteran Aaron Comery will look to add points in the shot put.
The women's side placed fifth in the team standings at Heps last season, while Harvard captured first place for the fourth straight season.
Natalie Schudrowitz has put together a strong indoor season, highlighted by a pair of school records in the mile (4:42.54) at the BU Terrier Invite and the 3,000 meters (9:11.61) at the Husky Invitational. Clare Peabody also set a school record in the 1,000 meters during the season, crossing at 2:46.48, good enough for third among league runners this season.
In the field, senior Shanelle DeJournett will lead a talented group in the high jump after a record-setting leap of 5-11.25, which stands as the best mark in the Ivies this winter, while rookies Kendra Offiaeli and Zion Lewis will look to continue their season success to Championship weekend.
