Whenever I manage to get a post in, it will be quick and update whenever I can. Like below:
Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino has gone 2-for-2 on the weekend, winning her second title of the weekend in the women’s 5,000m final. This is her second title in this distance.
Cornell senior Devin McMahon led for the majority of the race, where D’Agostino, Columbia’s Waverly Neer, Princeton’s Megan Curham, and Brown duo Heidi Caldwell and Lily Harrington were right on her shoulders. D’Ag took over the lead with 3 laps to go and begins to pull away with 2.5 laps to go. Only Neer kept with her, but ultimately, D’Ag was able to finish alone in a comfortable 16:34.48. Neer was second in 16:40.5. Curham outkicked Caldwell for 3rd, 16:48.5 to 16:49.0. Caroline Williams (Columbia) and Harrington rounded out the scorers with 16:56.2 and 17:00.2, respectively.
While D’Ag is entered in the 3,000m final later today, Coach Mark Coogan shared with Letsrun that D’Ag will only run it if Dartmouth has a chance for the team title. Based on what we have seen, it looks like we will be seeing her race that.
The 4×100 relays are complete.
Cornell’s Bruno Hortelano-Roig is on track for multiple Heps titles this weekend. He anchored his 4×100 relay to the win in 40.42, holding off a strong anchor leg from Princeton’s Tom Hopkins (2nd in 40.58). Penn edged out Harvard for 3rd, 41.10 to 41.20.
In the women’s 4×100, three teams bettered or equaled the previous Ivy League record. Harvard had claimed the lead within the 2nd leg and held off strong finishes from Dartmouth and Penn for the crown. Harvard finished in 45.40 (new Ivy League record), while Dartmouth held off Penn for 2nd, 45.59 to 45.60.
