But it wasnt just Wiener who made a splash in the event as Bridget Douglas was second and Moriah Morton took fourth, giving the Big Green 22 points in the event, tied for the most by a team in a single event at the meet.

While at Hillsdale, Forino also worked with the strength and conditioning program, designing and implementing workouts for more than 10 sports to improve speed, agility and conditioning. Before his 13-month stint in Hanover, Forino spent time at Springfield College (2000-02), working as an assistant with the men's and women's track & field teams while pursuing his master's degree in athletic administration.
In his career, Forino has coached more than 40 All-Americans, including the 2010 Division II Indoor National Champion in the weight throw.
"We are very excited to add Jeff to the Dartmouth coaching staff and to welcome him back to the Upper Valley,” Marjorie and Herbert Chase '30 Head Coach of Men's Track and Field and Cross Country Barry Harwick '77 said. “He will do a great job with our throws group and I am sure they will respond well to his coaching technique and instruction. Jeff's vast experience and success as the head coach of Hillsdale will serve him well. His knowledge of Dartmouth as a former coach with our program and in working with Bob Miller in strength and conditioning will allow him to hit the ground running."
