Brown at a Glance
The men's team finished fourth overall at last year's outdoor championship, while Cornell won the team title. 

Noah Korotzer and Tosin Oyewole will headline the sprinters, while Zack Emrich, who captured the 500-meter indoor title, will join rookie Zachary Lanigan to headline a strong middle distance group. Senior Martin Martinez will look to add points for the Bears in the distance events.

In the field, sophomore Jason Katz owns the top triple jump mark in the league this season, reaching 51-9.75 at the Rider Invitational. Senior Mark Buda also tops the Ivies in the javelin this season after a throw of 214-3 at the Virginia Challenge, while Owen Russell enters as one of the top competitors in the hammer. 

The women's team took sixth overall at the 2016 Outdoor Heps, while Harvard captured the team championship.

On the track, freshman Zion Lewis, Kennedy Kerr and May Stern will lead a young group of sprinters this time around, while veterans Clare Peabody and Taylor Worthy aim to pace the middle distance and distance groups, respectively.

Junior Carly Paul will look to compete in the heptathlon after posting a personal-best 5,207 points at the UVA Challenge, second best all-time in program history. Paul will join Jenell Grier-Spratley and Shanelle DeJournett as a strong trio in the high jump, while Kendra Offiaeli and Josie Natrasevschi enter the weekend with the second-best marks in the shot put and discus, respectively.
