NEW HAVEN, Conn - Another week, another first-place finish for the Dartmouth women's indoor track & field team. Sunday afternoon saw the Big Green head down to Yale's Coxe Cage where it came out on top, defeating both the Bulldogs and Columbia in Ivy League action.
The Green scored 76 points to win. The Lions claimed second place with 60, while the hosts finished third with 45.
Another win for the team and another school record and impressive showing by junior Abbey D'Agostino also seems to go hand-in-hand. The five-time All-American set a new Dartmouth standard in the 1000 meters, running a 2:45.42 to claim first.
Sunday's time by D'Agostino in the event was nearly four full seconds faster than the previous program mark of 2:49.41 set by Monica Adler '14. It was also the fastest time in the 1000m ever run by an Ivy League woman.
In the mile, the runners in Green and White dominated, taking the top three spots. Junior Lindsay Walsh took first in 4:58.07 leading the trio that also included senior Katie Sullivan in second and sophomore Alison Lanois in third.
Freshman Kaitlin Whitehorn took first in the high jump, clearing a height of 5-7.0/1-7m to win the event.
