There will be a moment of silence for Horace Ashenfelter III, who died this week, at this meet. He was a Penn State grad, who was the only American to ever win the 3000m steeplechase in the Olympics in 1952. He also was the only American to have held the world record in that run. The track on which this meet is held is named for him. As Georgetown is Steeple U. this should resonance with Scott Carpenter, et al.
