Track Teams Host Harvard Invite

The Harvard men's and women's indoor track teams hosted the 15th annual Harvard Invitational at the Gordon Track and Tennis Center on Saturday.

No team scoring was kept at the event, which included Division I, II and III New England schools as well as unattached competitors.

In the men's field, Harvard faced some stiff competition from Brown, which took four events at the meet.


The Crimson was able to claim a victory in the pole vault, as junior Aaron Snead cleared 4.85 meters. He won the event for the second time in as many weeks. Snead jumped 4.5 meters against Boston College in the Crimson's last meet.

Harvard women fared significantly better, however, as they locked up victories in seven of the 13 events.

"This meet and the team's success the last few weeks have shown what a formidable force we can be," said co-captain Brenda Taylor.

Taylor was as formidable a force as anyone on Saturday, taking two events for Harvard. She won both the 60-meter high hurdles and the 200-meter dash, falling short of a hat-trick in the 60-meter dash.

"It's always a nice thing to win," Taylor said. "But I'm really excited about the team this year. We have a fantastically talented and deep group of girls."
