CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Yale and Harvard took home their 14th straight victory against Oxford and Cambridge this Saturday at Wilberforce Road Track in Cambridge, winning 16 to four in the scored events. 

After nearly two weeks of travel and exhibition competitions, the Bulldogs returned to their primary events for the historic meet, sweeping many of the distance events and also claiming victories in both the sprints and the throws. 

On the field, Emma Vasen and Harvard thrower Martha Kebeh went two and three in the hammer throw, while Elizabeth Adelson finished fourth in the high jump, clearing 1.50 meters. Andrea Masterson won the first running event of the day, finishing first for the women in the 10,000 meters and beating the next female finisher by more than 90 seconds. 

Yale and Harvard's combined squad swept the long jump as well, with Bulldog Tessa Malone finishing second in the event. In the 400 meter hurdles, Addison Coy cruised to a win in 1:02.8 while Samantha Friborg finished second in the 800 meters running 2:06.13 in one of the most competitive races of the day. 

In her second event of the day, Vasen was the runner-up in the discus throw with Yale teammate Alladia Patterson claiming a third-place finish right behind her. In the 5,000 meters, Abbe Goldstein of Harvard and Sevanne Ghazarian of Yale earned the gold and silver, crossing the line in 17:30.62 and 17:31.42 respectively, while Jocelyn Chau won the mile with Harvard's Anna Juul finishing just a few seconds behind Chau for second place. 

Sprinter Lillian Enes finished third in the 200 meters, following two Harvard athletes for another event sweep for the Bulldog-Crimson team. Closing out the day, Kayley DeLay won the 3,000 meter steeplechase and Yale and Harvard's teams claimed victories in both the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays.
