Check It Out

A gorgeous – if cold – sunset yesterday sent me scrambling for my camera.
This is the view from the barn across the road. (Click to enlarge.)

After the sun went below the horizon, Killington and Pico were profiled.

The site has thorough analyses of the two Ivy Leaguers who were invited to the NFL Combine, featuring strengths, weaknesses and "bottom line."

The bottom line for Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews included this:
Might have the most long-term potential as a coach, yet has the intangible qualities that could allow him to stick in the league for 10-plus years. Has traits to surprise as a spot-starter once he acclimates to the pro game.
The bottom line for Princeton defensive tackle Caraun Reid included this:
Developmental talent with raw traits to mold.
The indoor Heps track championships are at Dartmouth's Leverone Field House today and tomorrow.

Given that the outdoor schedule on the track at Memorial Field is light, this will be the last chance to see senior Abbey D'Agostino – the top collegiate distance runner in the nation – run in these parts when it matters. She is scheduled to run in the mile trials at 3:30 today and come back to run the 5K at 4:35.

Tomorrow she should be in the mile finals at 12:10 and run a leg in the 4x8 relay at 3:35. D'Agostino, the most decorated runner in Ivy League history and the winner of four national titles in the 2013 calendar year, was the Most Outstanding Female Track Athlete of the Meet last year at Harvard.
