Geoghegan Sets Dartmouth, Ivy Mile Record
Boston — Senior Will Geoghegan broke the 20-year-old Dartmouth indoor record for the men’s mile on Saturday afternoon at Boston University’s Terrier Invitational.
Geoghegan ran a time of 3 minutes, 58.04 seconds in the second seeded heat of the day, breaking the old record of 4:02.26 set by Sam Wilbur in 1994. Geoghegan’s time is also the fastest mile in the nation this season, matching the feat set by his female counterpart and classmate Abbey D’Agostino (4:28.03) Friday night, giving Dartmouth the best male and female milers in the country.
The performance also set a new Ivy League mark, eclipsing the previous record of 3:58.52 set by Columbia’s Kyle Merber in 2010.
The only other Dartmouth student-athlete to break the four-minute mile in program history was Ben True, who has a 3:59.99 to his credit during the outdoor season.
