Following up his heptathlon win at the indoor Heps, junior Ben Ose scored the second-most points in league history, winning the decathlon with 7,491 points.
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.
Cha'Mia Rothwell, So., Durham, N.C., Jumps/Hurdles, Women's Track & Field
The sophomore continued her dominance of Ivy League hurdles with a record-setting win in the final of the 100m hurdles on Sunday at Penn’s Franklin Field and the 2018 Ivy League Heptagonal Outdoor Track & Field Championship. Rothwell ran a 13.24 in the final, setting an Ivy League meet record as well as breaking her own Dartmouth record to earn the title and her team another 10 points in the standings. In the process, she claimed her second All-Ivy League honor of the weekend, a first team honor to go along with her second-team recognition in the long jump from Saturday. For Rothwell, it was her second straight Ivy outdoor title in the event and the sixth conference championship of her career across both indoor and outdoor seasons. She remains the only Dartmouth woman ever to win the event title, a feature now accomplished in consecutive seasons.
Ben Ose, Jr., Eden Prairie, Minn., Multi, Men's Track & Field
The junior provided the lone event win at the 2018 Ivy League Heptagonal Outdoor Track & Field Championship for the Dartmouth men’s team, dominating the field in the decathlon. His 7,491 points were the second-best mark in league history at Heps and the second-best mark ever in the event by a Dartmouth student-athlete. It also ranks as the eighth-best score ever achieved by an Ivy Leaguer. Ose has put himself in good position to secure one of the 24 decathlon spots at the NCAA Championship meet in Oregon next month (June 6-9). In the 10-event decathlon over the two days, Ose won the long jump, 110m hurdles and pole vault .Ose was also the winner of the indoor heptathlon in Hanover back in February and returned to the top of the podium at Penn by winning outdoors as well.
