Running a big negative split, Dartmouth junior Abbey D’Agostino repeated as outdoor NCAA 5000 meter champion as she ran away from Oregon’s Jordan Hasay over the final 300 meters, denying the Oregon senior and the hometown fans the ‘storybook ending’ that Hasay and Oregonian faithful were hoping for.

D’Agostino won in 15:43.68. Hasay faded to third (15:50.78) once passed by D’Agostino as 10,000 champ Betsy Saina rallied from fourth to second (15:50.26) on the final lap.

D’Agostino’s win tonight was her fourth straight NCAA track title as in addition to her 5000 title last year in Des Moines, she also won indoor 3000 and 5000 crowns in Arkansas in March.

In Arkansas, she won both times by tightening the screws at the end of the race. Tonight was very similar. Indoors, the last 8 laps (1600 meters) of her 5000 win and last 7 laps of her 3000 win (1400 meters) were all faster than the previous one. Tonight, her final six laps on the 400 meter oval (2400 meters) were all faster than the previous one as she went 77.56, 75.28, 74.87, 72.61, 69.03, 66.74 (33.8, 32.9).

Abbey Wins NCAA Title #4

However, tonight D’Agostino found her self down in the final 400 as Hasay took the lead just before the bell. The Oregon crowd was naturally roaring. D’Agostino, responded over the final 300 and found another gear and won easily as Hasay had absolutely nothing left in the tank once passed back by D’Agostino.

Despite having the lead for the first 100 of the last lap, Hasay only managed a 74.05 for her final 400.

Quick takes, results, post-race interviews with D’Agostino, Saina, Hasay and fifth placer Megan Goethals appear below. Then you’ll find lap by lap splits below that.

Quick Take #1: We said D’Agostino won with a big negative split. We had her in 8:07 for the first half and 7:36 for the second half (with a last 1600 of 4:43). To be truthful, 7:36 isn’t that fast for her despite the close to 80 degree weather as her PB is 15:11, meaning in the past, she’s run the whole race faster than that pace.

QT #2: We’ve got ten minutes of post-race reaction from Hasay below. The beloved Duck said she got excited and was hopeful she’d get the ‘storybook ending’ when she found herself feeling great and with the lead pack with 800 go. At that point, she said she thought about striking from 600 out and also about waiting until 200 to go but in the end she split the difference and took the lead with 400 to go.

Hasay also said she really wished she was running a 10,000, not 5,000 tonight (Hasay failed to qualify in the 10,000 which she considers her main event due to the heat in Austin, TX). One advantage of not qualifying in the 10,000 is she’ll be a little bit fresher for USAs in a few weeks.

“I was trying to believe in storybook endings. But that’s life. You can script it all you want, but it doesn’t always work out the way you would like it to.”

“It’s kind of bittersweet. I would have liked to have ended on a win, but this is just the beginning for me in terms of my running career. … Certainly, this has been one of the best weeks of my life, thinking of all the different memories I’ve had as a Duck. These past four years have been an experience like no other. I feel really blessed.”

QT#3: In her interview below, D’Agostino said she didn’t realize Hasay was so close at the end saying, “And then Jordan was on my shoulder and I didn’t realize how close she was and she jumped me and I was like, ‘Okay, time to go.’ I knew that I had a little left in the tank so if I was going to do it, I needed to do it on that backstretch since it’s easier to pass in the straightaway.” Asked if she was worried when Hasay passed her, D’Agostino said that at first yes because she looked strong, but coming around the corner she could tell Hasay was digging deep and slowing down a bit while D’Agostino knew she had more in the tank.
