Dartmouth's D'Agostino wins another NCAA title

Dartmouth senior Abbey D'Agostino (Topsfield, Mass.) earned her sixth national championship Friday night as she won the 5,000 meters at the 2014 NCAA National Indoor Track & Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M.

For D'Agostino it was her second straight indoor national title in the 5,000 meter race. She won with a time of 16 minutes, 20.39 seconds.

Trailing Michigan's Erin Finn early on, D'Agostino steadily made up ground to pull away to the victory.

Stanford's Aisling Cuffe (16:22.48) and Kathy Kroeger (16:23.34) placed second and third, respectively.

The victory was the sixth NCAA title for D'Agostino who also has claimed outdoor crowns in the 5,000 (2012, 2013), indoor titles in the 5,000 (2013) and 3,000 (2013) to go along with a cross country championship in 2013.

D'Agostino claimed a distance double in 2013 with her indoor victories in both the 5,000 and 3,000, and she was scheduled to attempt that feat again late Saturday night.
