Justin Donawa and his Dartmouth Men’s Track & Field teammates finished fourth at the 2018 Ivy League Heptagonal Championship inside Leverone Field House.
In an impressive performance that stunned many in Ivy League circles, but few at Dartmouth, junior Donawa was crowned as the conference champion in the Triple Jump.
Donawa’s 15.57m/51-1.0 came on his first attempt of the day and was good enough to secure him the title and the 10 points.
After finishing fourth in last year’s meet, Donawa took the crown at home and snapped Harvard (3) and Princeton’s (4) seven-year stranglehold on the Triple Jump Title.
It was his second Ivy League title of the year as Donawa is also a member of the Big Green Men’s Soccer team that captured the Ancient Eight crown.
In the process, he became the first Dartmouth student-athlete to win a team championship in another sport and an individual title in the same year since Adam Nelson ’97 won a Championship with football during the 1996 season and both the Indoor and Outdoor Shot Put in 1997.
