All-American Billy Ledder

Jan. 20, 2015

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University track & field All-American Billy Ledder (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga) was named the BIG EAST Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league office in New York. The track & field team competed at the Nittany Lion Challenge on Saturday, hosted by Penn State University at the Horace Ashenfelter III Indoor Track in State College, Pa.

Ledder, a graduate student, earned the distinction following a first-place performance in the men's 800-meter run on Saturday. His time, 1:48.46, is the fastest collegiate time recorded this season according to the Track & Field Results Reporting System (TFRRS) as well as topping the conference list. He led a trio of Hoyas to the top three spots on the BIG EAST ascending list and the Blue & Gray owns nine of the top 10 times on the league's 800m list.

This is the second conference honor for Ledder, who previously earned an outdoor track nod from the league on April 17, 2014.

Georgetown returns to action on Friday and Saturday, January 30-31, as they return to Happy Valley for the National Invitational, hosted by Penn State University.
