PRINCETON, N.J. and WALTHAM, Mass. – The Dartmouth women’s track & field team split up on Saturday between the ECAC Championship at Princeton and the New Balance Twilight Meet at Bentley.

At ECACs, the 4x100m relay team broke the school record with a 46.93, the first sub-47-second finish in program history. The freshman quartet of Toni Aguiar, Sara Kikut, Anna Kikut and Jennifer Meech took 13th and broke the record of 47.28 the four had set just two weeks ago at UMass.

Sarah Kikut set a personal-best time in the 200m as she claimed 15th in 24.39. Meech also ran in the 200, taking 25th in 24.78.

Competing in the prelims of the 400m, Megan Krumpoch, the 2013 Ivy League outdoor champion in the 400m hurdles, posted a 55.61 to take 12th place.

Mollie Gribbin was ninth in the long jump with a measurement of 18-7.75/5.68m, while Cathy Liebowitz’s 166-11.0/50.88m in the hammer earned her 14th overall.

At Bentley, Abbey D'Agostino ran the fourth-fastest time in school history in the 800m, winning the event in 2:08.11. For D’Agostino, the 800m is an unfamiliar race as she is the two-time reigning Ivy champion in the 1500m and 3000m, in addition to being the defending national champion in the 5000m.

Dana Giordano was second in the 1500m at Bentley, crossing the line in 4:28.25.

The women will be back in action Sunday at Princeton, competing in the high jump, triple jump and shot put
