Senior Kyle Dotterrer won the 5,000 at the FSU Relays, earning 10 points for the Big Green.
Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week.
Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.
Elizabeth Mastrio, Jr., Wilbraham, Mass., M, Women’s Lacrosse
Mastrio scored nine goals in the Big Green’s two wins over the course of the week, notching four at Jacksonville in a thrilling game that came down to the final seconds with the Big Green coming away with the 17-16 victory. The junior then scored five times and assisted on another for a six-point day in Dartmouth’s 15-12 win at No. 16 Princeton, helping her team to a victory on the Tigers’ home field for the first time in a decade. For her efforts, Mastrio was named the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week as she helped Dartmouth move into the top-20 in the national rankings for the first time since 2013 as they’re ranked No. 19 in the latest US Lacrosse poll.
Kyle Dotterrer, Sr, Traverse City, Mich., Men’s Track & Field
Dotterrer was the highlight of the day for the Big Green last Friday in Tallahassee at the 39th annual FSU Relays at Mike Long Track hosted by Florida State. The senior harrier took home the top spot in the 5000m race as he crossed in 14:51.43, earning 10 points for the Big Green. Near the back of the pack after the second lap, he made a jump to fourth by the third where he stayed for the next five. Dotterrer then moved up two spots before finally jumping into the lead with two laps left, gaining the top spot that he would not relinquish en route to the victory with the second-place runner finishing seven seconds back.
