Georgetown Track & Field Honored with 12 All-America Distinctions

Devante Washington earns his first All-America distinction.

March 19, 2014

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field program concluded the indoor season with a trip to the NCAA Championships in Albuquerque, N.M., and walked away with 12 All-America distinctions, as announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

All-American Katrina Coogan (Exeter, N.H./Phillips Exeter Academy) led the way with two honors, both first team distinctions, finishing fifth in the women's 3,000-meter final and anchoring the seventh-place women's distance medley relay. Coogan improved upon her 2013 performance in the open 3,000m, in just her second season of indoor.

All-American Andrea Keklak (Sudbury, Mass./Sudbury-Lincoln/Princeton) participated in her first NCAA Championships and solidified herself as one of the best 800-meter runners in the country right now as she finished fourth in the finals, leading for much of the race. Her performance earned her first team honors.

In just her first year on the Hilltop, Sabrina Southerland (New York, N.Y./Benjamin N. Cardozo) doubled at nationals and competed in the open 800-meter semifinals just one hour before running the 800-meter leg in the women's distance medley relay. Southerland's double makes her a two-time All-American with one first team and one second team distinction.

The two remaining legs of the women's distance medley relay also earned First Team All-America honors in Hannah Neczypor (North Royalton, Ohio/North Royalton) and Deseree King (Oxon Hill, Md./Oxon Hill), both competing at the NCAA Championships for the first time in their careers. Neczypor ran the leadoff leg while King provided her expertise in the 400-meter stanza.

 

 

Also earning Second Team All-America honors are the men's distance medley foursome comprised of Amos Bartelsmeyer (St. Louis, Mo./Saint Louis Country Day), Devante Washington (Lafayette, La./Lafayette), Ryan Manahan (Marcellus, N.Y./Marcellus) and Ahmed Bile (Annandale, Va./Annandale). All competing on this national stage for the first time in their careers, the foursome came together and ran against some of the best distance programs in the country.

Billy Ledder (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga) was named a Second Team All-American following his performance in the men's 800-meter semifinals, his first time competing at the NCAA Championships.

The Hoyas open the outdoor season on March 20-21 at the William & Mary Invitational in Williamsburg, Va.
