AUSTIN, TexasAbbey D'Agostino has been named the 2014 Capital One Female Academic All-American of the Year as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

The announcement came Thursday afternoon as part of the 2014 Capital One Academic All-America Division I Men’s and Women’s Track and Field/Cross Country teams were announced.

On the men’s side, Luke Caldwell of New Mexico was tabbed as the Academic All-American of the Year.

D’Agostino can add this academic honor to her laundry list of athletic accomplishments that have come during her four-year career at Dartmouth. In addition to her Ivy-League best seven national titles, the Topsfield, Massachusetts, native was a 13-time All-American —three more than any other student-athlete in Ivy League history — as well as a 16-time conference champion across three seasons of competition.

This honor not only recognized her excellence in competition during 2013-14, but also her high level of commitment to excellence in the classroom. D’Agostino finished her collegiate career with a 3.75 grade-point average, earning her Dartmouth degree in Psychology in early June. This past year, the Big Green’s top female harrier was a four-time All-America, winning two indoor NCAA crowns and becoming the first Ivy Leaguer — male or female — to ever win the cross country national championship.

In earning the individual accolade, D’Agostino also secured a spot for herself on the First Team for the second year in a row. In all, 45 individual women were recognized across all three teams with 15 on each.

Most recently, D’Agostino signed with New Balance to continue her running career on a professional level.
