Dartmouth’s D’Agostino makes running history

Dartmouth senior Abbey D’Agostino won her seventh-career NCAA individual national championship Saturday night, repeating a champion in the indoor 3,000 meters in the event at Albuquerque, N.M.

D’Agostino became the first woman ever to win the 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters in the same meet in consecutive years after winning the latter Friday night inside the Albuquerque Convention Center.

D’Agostino completed the race in 9 minutes, 14.47 seconds Saturday to complete the distance double for the second time in as many years. Arkansas’ Dominque Scott was second in 9:16.05.

The Topsfield, Mass., native won the 5,000-meter title Friday night with a time of 16:20.39. Since the start of 2013, D’Agostino has won two indoor 5,000-meters, an outdoor 5,000-meters, two indoor 3,000-meters and the cross country title this past fall.

D’Agostino is a 12-time All-American in addition to her seven individual crowns, which are three more than the next-closest Ivy League student-athlete in the 131 years of record keeping.

Dartmouth senior Megan Krumpoch also claimed All-American status, finishing sixth in the 800 meters in 2:06.84, and as part of the Big Green’s distance medley relay team that finished eighth Friday night.
