NEW YORK – Running at The Armory — site of this year’s Ivy League Indoor Championship meet — the Dartmouth men’s track & field team came away with a win Friday afternoon.
The Big Green bested the hosts from Columbia and fellow Ivy rival Yale in the tri-meet. Dartmouth finished the afternoon with 89 points, while the Bulldogs were second with 70 and the Lions’ 22 good for third.
Dartmouth built its points on the foundation in the middle-distance and distance events. Miles Irish (4:10.09) edged out teammates Dominic Carrese (4:10.22) and Quinn Cooney (4:10.96) for the top spot in the mile, adding nine points to the team total.
Alex Frye was not only second in the final of the 60mH (8.08), but was the winner of the high jump (2.01m) for a combined eight points in his individual events. The triple jump also went the way of Dartmouth as Justin Donawa’s 15.21m bested the field and second-place Corey Muggler’s 15.16m for the win.
Tim Brennan’s throw of 18.42m was far and away the best of the day by any of the six competitors, besting the field by more than five feet.
