Senior Abbey D'Agostino continues her record setting ways while junior Eric Neiley is leading Big Green hockey team down the stretch run. D'Agostino broke her own personal best and Dartmouth record in the 3000m Saturday night at the Millrose Games in New York City. Neiley led the Dartmouth men's hockey team to a pair of wins at St. Lawrence and Clarkson this past weekend with a strong offensive showing.

Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Northeast Credit Union Athletes of the Week.

Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Northeast Credit Union Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.

Abbey D'Agostino, Sr., Topsfield, Mass., Women's Track


D'Agostino broke her own personal best and Dartmouth record in the 3000m Saturday night at the Millrose Games in New York City. The senior runner posted an 8:51.91 in the event against an elite field that featured 12 professionals. That time not only ranks as the best ever by a Big Green harrier, but also as the fourth fasted ever by a collegiate woman at that distance. The new standard in the event is the best time in the nation this year as well, eclipsing the previous mark by nearly nine full seconds. Currently, D'Agostino now has the fastest time by a collegiate female in the mile, 5000m and 3000m this season.

Eric Neiley, Jr., Warminster, Pa., Men's Hockey


Neiley led the Dartmouth men's hockey team to a pair of wins at St. Lawrence and Clarkson this past weekend with a strong offensive showing. The third-year forward recorded two assists in the 3-1 win against the Saints and chipped in with two goals and a helper in the dominating 6-1 victory against the Golden Knights. At St. Lawrence, Neiley was the primary assist on the tying goal from Brandon McNally and followed by starting the play on Grant Opperman's game-winning tally just minutes later. He would match his career high by notching two first-period goals the following night at Clarkson and chipped in on another Opperman marker to seal the win early in the third.
