The Most Outstanding Track Performer for women was Dartmouth super junior Abbey D’Agostino, who broke both the Championships’ mile and 5k records. She shaved more than 11 seconds off the mile mark, finishing in 4:32.42. She also paced four others under the old mark of Cack Ferrell of Princeton in 2006. Her 15:47.02 in the 5k washed away Caroline Bierbaum’s record set for Columbia in 2005.
The Most Outstanding Field Performer for women was Harvard junior Adabelle Ekechukwu, who crushed the record for the weight throw, both the Championship and all-time League marks, with a phenomenal throw of 20.83 meters (68-4 1/4). The previous mark was 61-4 set by Harvard’s Nicky Grant back in 2002.
Note: The coaches do not award a top rookie, but we pick Autumne Franklin of Harvard for that honor anyway.
