Abbey D'Agostino has proven herself worthy again and Chris Hanson is leading the way for the men's squash team. Since the beginning of 2012, D'Agostino has set two individual Dartmouth records and been a part of another one. Chris Hanson went 3-0 at the No. 1 spot to lead the Big Green squash team to wins over Middlebury and Brown. Their efforts have earned them the title of athletes of the week.

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

Abbey D'Agostino (Topsfield, Mass.), So. Women's Track

The sophomore distance runner once again took down a Dartmouth record this past week. This time, D'Agostino broke the school mark in the 3,000 meters by more than 12 seconds at Boston University's Valentine Invitational. She finished the race in 9:02.15, breaking the previous record of 9:14.75 in the process. Already this season, D'Agostino has rewritten the Dartmouth record books in both the mile (4:37.41) and now the 3,000. Last week, D'Agostino was also part of the Big Green's DMR team at the Collegiate Invitational in New York that not only set a school record, but an Ivy League record in the event with an 11:05.67, eclipsing the old Dartmouth record by 11 seconds.
