Though few members of the Harvard track team made the trip to Columbia this weekend, the few who did were dominant.
The traveling group--less than half the Harvard team--ran well Saturday, as it braced cold temperatures and almost constant rain at the Columbia Invitational.
The event hosted runners from Columbia, Cornell, Princeton, Yale and other local New York and New Jersey schools--over a dozen in all.
The event was an individual meet only, and no school was fully represented in every event.
Many of the runners stayed home to train this weekend, but those who ventured to Columbia ran strong races.
Sophomore John Cinelli ran the 800 meter in 1:53 to win his heat in a performance that equaled his personal record.
In his first 800 meter race ever, sophomore Nnamdi Okike clocked a time of 1:55, as did freshman Chris Antunes.
