M. & W. Track Unleash Against Huskies

The men's meet was much closer than the women's, but in the end, both of Harvard's indoor track teams prevailed in Saturday's competition with Northeastern at the Gordon Track and Tennis Center.

While the men's team (2-0) just barely sneaked past Northeastern, 74-69, the women's team (2-0) had relatively little trouble placing first in all but one of the events en route to a 96-26 trouncing of the Huskies.

The men faced some scary moments before finally putting the Huskies away.

"Things were a little too close for comfort," senior runner Dave Martin said. "We were just getting off break and some guys weren't as sharp as usual."

In a spur-of-the-moment coach's decision, Martin was called upon to compete in the 1,000-meter run. He ended up winning the event.

"I did not expect to win the 1,000," Martin said. "I was inserted in that at the last minute, but I guess it paid off."
