ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Dartmouth senior Abbey D'Agostino won her seventh-career NCAA individual national championship Saturday night, repeating in the indoor 3000m.

In winning the event, D’Agostino became the first woman ever to win the 3000m and 5000m in the same meet in consecutive years after winning the latter Friday night inside the Albuquerque Convention Center.

The Big Green finished the weekend with 24 team points, the most in program history. That total was good for a tie for seventh with Stanford. Georgia sits first with 40.5 points.

D’Agostino ran a 9:14.47 Saturday to complete the distance double for the second time in as many years, completing the historic feat never accomplished in NCAA history. Arkansas’ Dominque Scott was second in 9:16.05.

The Topsfield, Mass., native won her sixth-career title Friday night with a 16:20.39 in the 5000m. Since the start of 2013, D’Agostino has won two indoor 5000m, an outdoor 5000m, two indoor 3000m and the cross country title this past fall.

As it stands now, D’Agostino is a 12-time All-American in addition to her seven individual crowns, which are three more than the next-closest Ivy League student-athlete in the 131 years of record keeping.

In addition to D’Agostino, senior Megan Krumpoch also claimed All-American status, finishing sixth in the 800m in 2:06.84.

Krumpoch was also a two-time All-American this weekend as she was part of the Big Green’s distance medley relay (DMR) team that finished eighth Friday night.
