JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Georgetown track & field All-American Katrina Coogan (Exeter, N.H./Phillips Exeter Academy) was named to the Academic All-District Women's Track & Field Team for District II as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) today.
Coogan, a 10-time All-American on the Hilltop, had a stellar indoor track & field season that saw her anchor the NCAA champion distance medley relay (DMR) squad and turn in a third-place performance in the women’s 3,000-meter run at the 2016 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, held in Birmingham, Ala.
Coogan continued her impressive senior campaign during the outdoor season, where she again anchored a championship DMR team - this time at the 2016 Penn Relays Carnival. Coogan and the DMR brought home one of two titles for the Hoyas at the Penn Relays. She picked up a pair of event crowns at the 2016 BIG EAST Outdoor Championships, winning the 1,500-meter run handily and successfully defending the 4x800-meter title as she ran the third leg of the relay. She became just the second Hoya in program history to win back-to-back conference 1,500-meter crowns.
Coogan graduated with a degree in human science on the Hilltop and is still competing this outdoor season, entering the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships - East Preliminary in the women's 5,000-meter run.
This is the third-consecutive honor for the Hoyas. Coogan went on to earn Capital One Academic All-America Third Team honors in the national ballot in 2015.
