Callahan, D’Ags Take Academic Honors

Two members of the Heps Nation — Princeton’s Peter Callahan and Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino — have been selected as first-team Academic All-Americans by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Callahan, who anchored the Tigers to the NCAA Championship in the distance medley relay during the indoor season, graduated from Princeton with a 3.40 grade-point average in history. The Evanston, Ill., native will now head to graduate school and continuing competing at the University of New Mexico.

D’Agostino, who won three individual NCAA titles in 2013, has another year left at Dartmouth to improve upon her 3.67 grade-point average in psychology. The Topsfield, Mass., native has missed qualifying for the both the Olympics and the IAAF World Championships by less than two seconds.

Yale graduate Dakota McCoy, a hurdler from Wexford, Pa., is heading to England this fall as a Rhodes Scholar after amassing a 3.94 GPA in ecology and evolutionary biology. She was a second-team pick.
