HANOVER, N.H. – For the sixth year in a row, the men’s track & field team won the Dartmouth Relays, scoring an impressing 189 points on Sunday inside Leverone Field House.
"The 48th annual Dartmouth Relays was one of our most successful in many facets,” The Marjorie and Herbert Chase ’30 Director of Track & Field and Cross Country Barry Harwick ’77 said. “We had three days of great performances between the high school and college competitions. On the final day, the Big Green student-athletes put on a dominating performance."
In all, seven individuals won events to help the home team to their final team score.
Corey Muggler and Max Cosculluela were dominant in their respective events, beating the second-place individuals by a considerable margin. Muggler claimed the top spot in the long jump with a 23-9.00/7.24m, more than 13 inches better than the runner-up. Cosculluela was nearly a foot better in claiming the 10 points for winning the pole vault.
Dartmouth was perfect in the 3000m race, taking all six scoring positions and boasting the top-eight collegiate runners in the event.
