BOSTON - The Dartmouth women's track & field team concluded its weekend with two meets over Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. The Big Green ran at the New Balance Twilight Meet at Bentley on Saturday and the ECAC Championship Meet Sunday at Princeton.

Sophomore Abbey D'Agostino (Topsfield, Mass.) and senior Alexi Pappas (Alameda, Calif.) finished first and second in the 1,500 meters at Bentley's meet. D'Agostino's 4:16.15 eclipsed the school record of 4:17.90 that the sophomore harrier set last week in the finals of the event at Heps.

Pappas was second in the race Saturday, running the third-best time in Dartmouth history with a 4:18.41.

Sunday's finales at the ECAC Championships saw sophomore Janae Dunchack (Northern Cambria, Pa.) earn a half a point as she was part of a six-way tie in the high jump. Dunchack cleared 5-7.0/1.70m on her first attempt to help find herself as part of the log jam seeking the final points.

Junior Emmaline Berg (Holliston, Mass.) also competed Sunday, throwing the shot put. Berg claimed 15th with a 44-0.0/13.41m toss on her second attempt of the day.

The Big Green will now wait to see who will move on to the NCAA East Regional in Jacksonville in two weeks. Individuals will find out if they're headed to the Sunshine State when performance lists are released in the coming days. There will be another twilight meet next weekend for one last attempt at getting more members of the Big Green into the regional meet.
