HANOVER, N.H. - Junior Jalil Bishop won both the 200m and 400m races Saturday afternoon at Leverone Field House as the Big Green hosted the 2013 Dartmouth Classic.

The event was a non-scoring meet and featured teams from all over the northeast. It was the second home meet of the season for the Big Green programs after the Dartmouth Relays the second weekend of January.

Bishop took home the top spot in the 200m with a 22.83, while running a 50.96 to earn first in the 400m. In both instances, Bishop held on for slim margins of victories, demonstrating an ability to outkick the opposition on this day.

Freshman Jack Terwilliger was another Big Green runner to claim a first-place finish Saturday, winning the 1000m in 2:32.73.

The men's 4x400m relay team ran a 3:25.22 to take first as well. Comprising Dartmouth's quartet of runners in the race were Bishop, Brendin Beauliue-Jones, Jonathan Brady and Edward Wagner. Rensselaer was second in the event, claiming the runner-up spot in 3:27.88.

Junior Dom Filiano dominated the field in the men's shot put, taking home first with a 54-0.0/16.46m on his only non-foul toss of the afternoon. By comparison, second-place Ben Keach of Keene State had his best throw come in at more than five-and-half feet short of Filiano's mark.

Thomas Servino, a Dartmouth sophomore, was yet another Big Green student-athlete to win his event on Saturday, taking home the prize in the weight throw. Servino bested the rest of the field with a 55-1.0/16.79m, while Filiano was second (53-5.75/16.30m).

In the 60m hurdles, senior Jacob Evanter was the top collegiate finisher with an 8.22 in the finals after running 8.37 in his primary heat.

Next weekend will see the majority of the team head to Boston for the Valentine Invitational at Boston University, a site Dartmouth should feel comfortable running in as it has been there twice before in 2012-13.
