Green Doubles At Relays

Hanover — Using wins in late events, the Dartmouth College men’s track and field team joined the women in sweeping to titles at the 44th Dartmouth Relays at Leverone Field House yesterday.

The Big Green men edged Northeastern, 128-113, for their second Relays championship in a row, their fifth in six years and their seventh since team scoring began at the 2003 meet. The women rang up 185 points to win their third team crown in a row, led by school-record performances from junior Abbey D’Agostino (mile; 4:34.15) and freshman Mollie Gribbins (60-meter dash; 7.76).

Lebanon High graduates Josh Cyphers and Dominic Filiano also contributed points for Dartmouth, with Cyphers taking third in the pole vault (14 feet, 6 inches) and Filiano claiming second in the shot put (51-1.5). Another ex-Raider, Cathy Liebowitz, contributed a win in the women’s weight throw.

Dartmouth joins Columbia in an Ivy League indoor meet at Yale on Sunday.
