Joslyn Woodard Named Female Athlete of the Meet as Yale Finishes Second at Heps
Feb. 28, 2005
Junior Joslyn Woodard won three events for the second year, becoming only the third athlete to do so at the Ivy League championships. The Elis finished second at the Heps, amassing 74 points.
Woodard finished first in the long jump, 60m dash, and 200m dash. Her long jump victory on Saturday came with her distance of 6.04 meters, and she ran the fastest qualifying times in both sprinting events to move into the finals.
On Sunday, she ran a 7.63 in the 60m dash (teammate Katrina Castille followed in second with a 7.73) and a 24.49 in the 200m dash to earn her third title and earn Female Athlete of the Meet honors.
Woodard now has seven individual titles at the Indoor Heps, making her only one short of the record of eight. She holds the Heps record for the long jump and the 60m run.
Yale's rookie distance runner Lindsay Donaldson had an impressive debut at Indoor Heps, winning the 3K race in a time of 9:16.97, nearly two seconds ahead of the second place runner.
Vanessa Mazandi finished third in the 800k with a time of 2:09.54.
Cornell won the meet, sweeping the men's and women's titles.
