Today this all changed for the better, as we had some of the best performances of the year happen against a good Dartmouth program. Our only senior, Dan Kinney did some great things in winning the 1M today. Freshman Erin Clifford had a very good day on the women’s side, winning and qualifying for the NCAA Zone Meet. Our women swept both boards, with sophomore Kamrin Dawkins having an exceptional day in that accomplishment.”
