Ever hear of a distance runner breaking three meet records in two days. Welcome to the world of Abbey D’Agostino, who just won the 3,000-meter run in 9:24.64, two-and-a-half seconds faster than Cack Ferrell’s 2004 record of 9:27.15. D’Agostino had broken the meet 1,500m record in qualifying on Saturday and then broke it again earlier today. Amazing.
Teammate Alexi Pappas, who earlier today broke the steeplechase record, was just behind D’Ag in 9:25.63, also below the previous standard.
We are giving the Most Outstanding Performer to D’Agostino and we are polishing the championship trophy for Cornell after Ailish Hanly claimed the high jump title with a winning leap of 5-9 1/4. Cornell’s lead over Princeton is now 34 points with just the 4×4 and 4×8 relays and the discus remaining.
