Hometown: Topsfield, Mass. Major: PsychologyAbbey D'Agostino has spent four years shattering running records. She has won 16 Ivy cross-country/track and field championships, including an unprecedented trifecta in the 10K, 5K, and 3K this spring; 12 All-America designations; and seven NCAA crowns—the most by any Ivy athlete. She holds the Ivy record in six events. She won the 2014 Kenneth Archibald Prize as Dartmouth's top scholar-athlete and was a three-time nominee and the 2014 winner of the national Honda Sports Award in cross-country. She's also found time to do research on gender and politics and an independent study on the intersection of health and psychology; volunteer for two nonprofits—Girls on the Run and Find the Courage; and participate in two Christian fellowship groups. She plans to run professionally next year and eventually to pursue a master's degree in psychology or social work.Marshals are carefully selected by fellow students for their citizenship, enthusiasm, integrity, and positive impact on others.
