WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field team tallied nine honors today as the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released its All-America teams following the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, held at historic Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene. Four Hoyas received All-America honors for the first time in their careers.

On the men's side, the Blue & Gray tallied six honors, three on the second team. All-Americans Darren Fahy (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) and Ryan Gil (Pittsburgh, Pa./North Allegheny) each earned second-team honors in the men's 3,000-meter steeplechase. They become the sixth and seventh Hoyas to be named All-American in the event. This is the first time either one has earned the distinction.

Also earning a place on the second team was Collin Leibold (Falls Church, Va./Gonzaga) with a 13th-place finish in the men's 5,000-meter run. It is Leibold's first honor and he is the sixth Hoya to earn the distinction in the event.

Earning second-team honors on the women's side was Sabrina Southerland (New York, N.Y./Benjamin N. Cardozo) in the women's 800-meter run. This is Southerland's fourth All-America accolade in her two-year career on the Hilltop.

In his first year of outdoor eligibility, Jonathan Green (Berlin, Mass./St. John's High School) earned honorable mention accolades in the men's 10,000-meter run. Already GU All-Americans, Joe White (Clifton, N.J./DePaul Catholic) and Cole Williams (San Francisco, Calif./Occidental College) each recorded honorable mention accolades in the men's 800-meter run and the men's 1,500-meter run, respectively.

 

 

On the women's side, All-Americans Madeline Chambers (Rocky River, Ohio/Magnificat) and Katrina Coogan (Exeter, N.H./Phillips Exeter Academy) each picked up honorable mention distinction in the women's 1,500-meter run and the women's 10,000-meter run, respectively.

Those who finished in the top eight in distance events were named to the first team while those who finished in spots 9-16 were named second team. Honorable mention distinction went to all competitors in Eugene though the moniker "All-American" is reserved for only members of the first and second team.
