Track & Field Garners 28 USTFCCCA All-Region Selections; Curtin Named Women's Region Coach of the Year

The Emory University Track and Field programs earned a combined 28 South/Southeast All-Region indoor track & field selections as announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) earlier this week.

To be named All-Region, an athlete must either be ranked in the top-5 of an individual event in the region according to final TFRRS data or be part of a top-3 relay team. The organization first began recognizing All-Region award winners in 2016.

In addition to the 28 All-Region selections, Head Coach John Curtin was named the South/Southeast Women’s Coach of the Year. It is the fifth time Curtin has garnered the award for the indoor season in his career and first since 2016. Curtin is currently in his 33rd year with the program.

The women's team, which finished the season as the top ranked team in the USTFCCCA South/Southeast regional rankings, earned 20 South/Southeast All-Region honors. NCAA-bound senior Gabrielle Stravach and juniors Dani Bland and Dilys Osei lead the way with three All-Region selections apiece.

On the men's side, the Eagles garnered eight All-Region selections with Birmingham-bound senior Max Brown earning a team-high two awards in the Mile and Distance Medley Relay.

Stravach, Bland, Osei, Brown along with senior Erica Goldman and sophomore Kaitlyn Leonard will represent Emory at this weekend's NCAA Division III Championships. Action from Birmingham, AL begins Friday afternoon.
