WASHINGTON - Georgetown University track & field standouts Sabrina Southerland (New York, N.Y./Benjamin N. Cardozo) and Jonathan Green (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's High School) both represented the United States at the 2014 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Track & Field Championships, held at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., this week.

Southerland, an All-American on the Hilltop, finished third in her round of the women's 800-meter heats on Tuesday. Southerland timed in at 2:05.84 to automatically qualify for the semifinals of the event. Southerland was the only American to advance to the semifinals from the heats and the lone American middle distance athlete to advance to the next round from Tuesday's heats.

Wednesday's semifinal was a stacked field and Southerland's heat was significantly closer with the spread nearly four seconds smaller than the other semifinal. The rising sophomore timed in at 2:08.76, good enough for 13th overall in the round. Her time was not enough to advance to the final, scheduled for Thursday.

In the men's 10,000-meter final, Green finished 24th among the 38-athlete field with a time of 31:15.69. The rising sophomore, who redshirted the entirety of his freshman year, had a strong recovery from an injury suffered early in the year to earn the opportunity of representing the United States. Green was the second US finisher as Brendan Shearn finished 15th.
