I don’t know when it is appropriate to hang the G.O.A.T. on Dartmouth junior Abbey D’Agostino, but this year alone she has captured League records in the 1k, mile and 3k. She’d probably have done it in her specialty, the 5k, but she hasn’t run it yet. Given that she has those marks, an NCAA championship and was a near-miss Olympian before her junior season, I am already calling her the League’s greatest of all-time.
Also, just last week she ran 4:30.03 for a mile at the Millrose Games. That is top-10 all-time… in NCAA history!
So will she have competition? Probably not, but Princeton senior Greta Feldman is a great miler (as well as 800m runner). If she decides to run that event, it might make for a fantastic race. A pair of Columbians — senior Erin Gillingham and freshman Olivia Sadler — have also run quick mile times.
But the story of the distances races has got to be the Cornell Big Red. They’ve carried over an amazing cross country season and now occupy most of the top five in both the 3k and 5k. The lineup of Katie Kellner, Rachel Sorna, Emily Shearer, Caroline Kellner and Devin McMahon could put up enough points to pace the Big Red to a team victory.
