Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino just took down the Heps’ meet record in the 5k, finishing in 15:47.02. Former Columbia All-American Caroline Bierbaum held the old mark at 15:55.03 (which was the only sub-16 in championship history). Rachel Sorna of Cornell dipped under 16 in this race for second (15:56.63). The Big Red’s 2-3 finish puts it in the team lead.

I am undecided on whether to call her simply D’Ag or G.O.A.T. For those who don’t know, G.O.A.T. is Greatest of All Time.

The final women’s running event of the day is complete as Marvellous Iheukwumere posted a top 200m time of 24.58. She’d also had the top time in the 60m dash. The team race for the women is completely open.
