Courtney Jaworski, Junior, Middle Distance, Tacoma, Wash./Curtis
Junior Courtney Jaworski successfully defended his title in the 800m run by setting a new meet record at the 2005 Ivy League Indoor Heptagonal Championships on Feb. 27. Jaworski clocked a winning time of 1:50.29 to eclipse the 15-year-old record of 1:50.36 set by Princeton’s Keefe Clemons in 1988, becoming only the fourth student-athlete since 1978 to win consecutive 800m titles. Jaworski was also a member of the Penn two-mile relay that won the event with a time of 7:36.73. For his efforts, Jaworski was named Athlete of the Meet along with Princeton’s Erison Hurtault.
