Dani Bland Tabbed as UAA Women's Track Athlete of the Week

Junior Dani Bland was named the University Athletic Association's Athlete of the Week after helping the Emory University Women's Track and Field team to a fifth place finish at the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships this past weekend in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Bland was the national runner-up in the 100m Dash (11.97) and was third in the 200m Dash (24.66) to capture individual All-America honors. She added All-America acclaim as a member of both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays, helping both relays to top-four finishes. She ran the third leg in the 4x400m as Emory finished as the national runners-up, helping the Eagles run the 11th fastest time in Division III history at 3:42.97. She ran the second leg as a member of Emory's 4x100m relay, which placed fourth with a time of 47.04.

The four All-America awards at a single NCAA meet were the most by an Eagle in program history and pushed her career All-America total to eight, the most by a student-athlete in Emory Track and Field history.
