1. Penn | 177
2. Harvard | 114

• In her only event of the day, sophomore Cha'Mia Rothwell won the 100m hurdles. For Rothwell, it was her second straight Ivy outdoor title in the event and the sixth conference championship of her career across both indoor and outdoor seasons. She remains the only Dartmouth woman ever to win the event title, a feat now accomplished in consecutive seasons.
• Rothwell ran a 13.24 in the final, setting a new Ivy League meet record as well as breaking her own Dartmouth record to earn the title and her team another 10 points in the standings. In the process, she claimed her second All-Ivy League honor of the weekend, a first team honor to go along with her second-team recognition in the long jump from Saturday.
• Rothwell actually ran a 13.23 last year at Yale in the 2017 conference championship meet, but that time was wind-aided and therefore did not count. Sunday’s mark was wind legal and will stand as the new meet standard.
• Lauren Sapone was fourth in the 3000m steeplechase, finishing in 10:16.50 to earn four points.
• In the 1500m, senior Bridget O’Neill was fifth to earn two points. She ran a 4:25.13 as the top-seven runners all finished within four seconds of one another.
• Maria Garman earned a point in the high jump, finishing sixth after clearing 1.65m on her second attempt.
• Nicole Deblasio also added a point to the team total by taking sixth in the 200m. The junior claimed the final scoring spot by running a 24.42 in Sunday’s final.
• Julia Stevenson was sixth and picked up a point in the 5000m, running a 16:40.43. Lillian Anderson missed out on the scoring by a single spot, placing seventh in 16:41.58.
• The lone relay team to score was the 4x800m group of Bridget O'Neill, Bridget Flynn, Grace Thompson and Abby Livingston. The quartet ran an 8:48.72 to secure a pair of points for the Big Green.
• The final scoring of the day came in the heptathlon as Garman (4715) and Gretta Pickett (4212) finished fifth and sixth, respectively, to earn a combined three points.
• Dartmouth will host the 2018 New England Championship Meet Friday and Saturday (May 11-12) at Memorial Field. Admission is free.
• Given the number of strong times posted over the course of the outdoor season, the coaching staff expects there to be a very large number of individuals qualifying for the NCAA East Regional Meet in Tampa later this month (May 24-26).
