Georgetown Men's Track Ranked 24th in the Country

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field team broke into the U.S. Track & Field Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NCAA Division I National Team Computer Rankings top 25 for the first time this season following the release of the rankings on Monday, April 28. In the fourth rankings of the season, the computer formula removes preseason marks from the 2013 season, creating a big reshuffle in the latest standings.

"It's nice for our program to earn this ranking," Director of Track & Field and Cross Country Patrick Henner said. "But we still have to stay focused on the training and preparation for the postseason and continue to work hard as we move along to BIG EAST, regionals and nationals."

The Blue & Gray garnered the ranking based on a computer formula predicting how each school would score at nationals based on the existing ascending lists. Racking up the most computer points for the Hoya men are the steeplers with Darren Fahy (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon), Matt Howard (Blacksburg, Va./Blacksburg) and All-American Dylan Sorensen (Zionsville, Ind./Zionsville) boasting the fifth-, seventh- and eighth-fastest times in the country currently.

Also racking up computer points for the Hoyas are All-American Billy Ledder (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga) in the 800-meter run, All-American Andrew Springer (Westerly, R.I./Westerly) in the 10,000-meter run and Eghosa Aghayere (Henrietta, N.Y./Henrietta Sperry) in the triple jump.

 

 

Georgetown was one of six schools to make an appearance in this week's rankings after not appearing in the week three standings.

The Hoyas return to action on Sunday, May 4 at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.
