Moving from cross country to indoor track hasn't slowed Abbey D'Agostino a bit. D'Agostino and Connor Reilly are speeding around the track earning Athlete of the Week honors for the Big Green. Just two weeks into the indoor season both athletes are contributing to the indoor track team with stelllar performances.

Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Northeast Credit Union Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.


Abbey D'Agostino, (Topsfield, Mass.) Jr., Women's Track


For the second week in a row, D'Agostino broke a Dartmouth record. Sunday afternoon in New Haven, D'Agostino ran a 2:45.42 in the 1000m at Yale's Coxe Cage. That time was not only four seconds faster than the previous school record, but also was the fastest time ever run by an Ivy League woman in the event. Just seven days prior, D'Agostino broke the school and Dartmouth Relays record in the mile and set the world standard for women in the event in 2013 as she ran a 4:38.15 (converted to a 4:31.46) on Jan. 13 in Leverone Field House.

Connor Reilly (Niskayuna, N.Y. ) Sr., Men's Track

Reilly was the anchor of a stellar Dartmouth sprinting performance Sunday at Yale's tri-meet, winning both events in which he ran. Running in the 200m for the first time this season, the senior and team captain posted a finish of 22.36 to earn the five points for his team. In his main event, Reilly won the 60m with relative ease, crossing the line in 6.96. He was the lone runner in the field to post a sub-seven-second time.
