Katrina Coogan Named CoSIDA Second Team Academic All-American

June 24, 2016

WASHINGTON - Georgetown track & field All-American Katrina Coogan (Exeter, N.H./Phillips Exeter Academy) was named to the 2015-16 CoSIDA Academic All-America Track & Field / Cross Country Second Team, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) today. This is the second-consecutive year Coogan has earned Academic All-America honors as she was a third team selection in 2015.

Coogan, an 11-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 one at the 2016 Penn Relays Carnival. Coogan and the relay team 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.

An NCAA finalist, she finished 20th in the 5,000-meter run at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, to pick up the 11th All-America distinction of her career.

Coogan graduated with a degree in human science from Georgetown and will continue competing this summer.

This is the third-consecutive CoSIDA Academic All-America honor for the Hoyas in women’s track & field / cross country.
