JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Senior Abbey D'Agostino is heading to her fourth career NCAA Outdoor Championship meet two weeks from now. And for the first time since 2012, she will have some company while there.

D’Agostino advances to Oregon in the 5000m after running a 15:57.37 to win her heat and claim second overall in a field of 48 on Saturday night at the NCAA East Regional at North Florida’s Hodges Stadium. Already the two-time defending national champion in the event, she will have some company in Eugene as sophomore Dana Giordano also earned a spot in the national final by taking eighth in 16:05.04.

The two ran in the second heat with D’Agostino winning and Giordano taking fourth. The top five finishers in each section automatically earned spots at nationals, while the two at-large berths were awarded to those with the next best two times in either race.

May 31, 2014

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Dartmouth men’s track & field team had not been represented at the NCAA Outdoor Championships since 2008 prior to Saturday evening. Senior John Bleday and sophomore Curtis King changed all that as they both earned berths to the 2014 meet in the 5000m.

Running in one of the final events of the day at North Florida’s Hodges Stadium and the NCAA East Regional, the Big Green duo erased the five-year drought for the men as both punched their tickets to Eugene, Oregon, and the national finals of the 5000m.

Running in the faster of the two heats, King secured one of the two at-large berths as his 14:11.75 had him sixth in his section as well as sixth overall. Bleday claimed second in his heat, earning an automatic berth to Oregon with a 14:13.04, a mark that was good for ninth overall.
