The Yale women's track and field team came as close as possible to winning the annual H-Y-P meet held in New Haven on Saturday afternoon, however Princeton took first with 75, Yale with 65 and Harvard with 19. Yale had a number of strong performances and individual wins which it hopes to better capitalize upon at the Indoor Heps, to be held in two weeks.
Joslyn Woodard continued her strong indoor season, taking first in the 200 meter dash (24.71) and the long jump (6.04 m). Yale's other individual winners included Katherine Dlesk (100 meter dash, 57.46), Vanessa Mazandi (800 meter, 2:11.90), Molly Lederman (pole vault, 4.06 m), Dionna Thomas (triple jump, 11.42 m) and Margot Angelopoulos (shot put, 12.77 m).
Yale also swept the relays, winning the 4 x 400 (3:51.88) and the 4 x 800 (9:04.04).
The Bulldogs have another shot to top the Tigers in two weeks at the Indoor Heps, which will be held this year at Harvard.
