BOSTON, Mass. – The Dartmouth women’s track & field team opened the 2016-17 indoor season Saturday at Boston University and the Track and Tennis Center.
The aptly named “2016-17 BU Season Opener” was a non-scoring meet that serves a good test for many of the Big Green’s freshmen and members of the team who do not participate during cross country season.
Folasade Akinfe won the long jump with a mark of 18-06.00/5.64m, while Aliyah Gallup claimed the top spot in the 1000m in 2:53.25, pacing an event that saw Dartmouth place four individuals in the top-10.
