D’Agostino Double

Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino finished 8th in the 3000m last night to earn her second All-American status on the weekend.  She finished in 9:18.54.  the winner was Georgetown’s Emily Infeld (9:15.44).   Columbia’s Waverly Neer finished 15th overall in 9:33.32, where according to a commenter that Neer got tangled up with about 600m to go and fell.  We hope she is ok.

Princeton’s Peter Callahan finished 6th in the mile with 4:02.66, earning his first All-American status.  Callahan was interviewed by Flotrack about his mile file experience (video here).  Tulsa’s Chris O’Hare won the mile in 4:01.66 after leading the race from the start.

Penn’s Maalik Reynolds cleared 7-2.5 to finish 8th in the high jump to get All-American status.  Cornell’s Montez Blair finished in a tie for 9th place with a clearance of 7-0.25.  Arizona’s Nick Ross was the only man to clear 7-3.75 on his first attempt, and was declared the winner.

Both the Oregon women and Florida men teams defended their titles again this year.  They both have won the team titles for the last three years.

Photos of the NCAA Championships have been uploaded and available for viewing at Track and Field Photo Magazine’s website (Day 1, Day 2).

Congratulations to all competitors, and in particular, to the Ivy League athletes!  Enjoy your short break before outdoor begins in a few weeks.

    Waverly Neer fell with 600 meters to go- got tangled up with the crowed as tight as it was. So disappointing

      Wow, I did not know that as I did not watch the race.  That is really disappointing and I hope Waverly is ok.
