Katrina Coogan

June 25, 2015

WASHINGTON - Georgetown track & field All-American Katrina Coogan (Exeter, N.H./Phillips Exeter Academy) was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Division I Women’s Track & Field as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) today.

Coogan, a seven-time All-American on the Hilltop, had an impeccable cross country season that saw her win the individual BIG EAST Conference and Mid-Atlantic Region title while leading the Hoyas to both team titles. It was the first time since 2007 that a Hoya had won either event. Coogan became the third GU student-athlete to win the BIG EAST title (Suzanne Girard - 1983, Melissa Grelli - 2007) and the Blue & Gray picked up two league titles during her four seasons of competition (2012, 2014).

At the 2015 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, Coogan added two more All-America accolades as she led off for the seventh-place Hoyas in the women’s distance medley relay and finished fourth in the women’s 3,000-meter finals. It was the third-straight year she had earned first team honors in the event, bettering her finish each year. The 2015 season marks the fourth-consecutive year and the fifth time in six years the Hoyas have had a competitor in the finals of the event.

She made the finals site of the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, competing in the women’s 1,500-meter run. Coogan won the same event at the 2015 BIG EAST Championships, her first conference outdoor title and the third overall individual league title of her career.

Coogan is a human science major at Georgetown and is still competing well after the NCAA season as she is entered in the women’s 1,500-meter first round at the USA Track & Field (USATF) Championships that begin today and go through Sunday, June 28.

The four-day meet is held at historic Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene. Nine other current and former Hoya student-athletes will also compete at the meet.

 

 

This is the second-consecutive track & field / cross country Academic All-America honor as All-American Andrea Keklak (Sudbury, Mass./Lincoln-Sudbury/Princeton) earned the distinction in 2014. Keklak earned Capital One Academic All-America Second Team honors on the national ballot.
