WASHINGTON - Georgetown University’s track & field team placed 13 men and nine women on the 2018 All-BIG EAST Outdoor Track & Field Team, as announced by the league office on Tuesday. The announcement came after the Hoyas tallied eight event titles at the championships en route to a fourth-place finish on the men’s side and a fifth-place finish for the women.
The GU men are third in the league with 13 athletes on the squad, trailing just Marquette (21) and Villanova (16). For the women, nine athletes receiving the honor ranks fourth in the league behind Villanova (17), Marquette (14) and DePaul (13). The men received 17 total honors from 13 student-athletes in 10 different events. On the women’s side, the Blue & Gray received 14 recognitions from nine student-athletes in seven different events.
For his efforts over the weekend, All-American Amos Bartelsmeyer (St. Louis, Mo./St. Louis Country Day) was named the meet’s Outstanding Men’s Track Performer, following up All-American Joe White’s (Clifton, N.J./DePaul Catholic) co-honor from the 2017 outdoor championships.
Taylor Williams (Hatboro, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham/Clemson) was honored with the Female High Point Performance Award following the championships, where she tallied 21.5 points behind wins in the 100- and 200-meter dashes as well as a third-place showing in the 4x100-meter relay.
Freshman Nate Alleyne (Downingtown, Pa./Bishop Shanahan), winner of the 200-meter dash, was one of three men in the league to earn three All-BIG EAST distinctions while Williams was one of four women to achieve the feat.
The Blue & Gray will continue the season May 24-26 when the Hoyas travel to Tampa, Florida for the 2018 NCAA Track & Field Championships East Preliminary.
