2018-19 Women's Indoor Track & Field Season Recap

2018-19 Women's Indoor Track & Field Season Recap

The Emory University women's track and field team extended their streak of scoring at the NCAA Indoor Championships to four straight campaigns as the Eagles saw three athletes clinch berths to nations during the 2018-19 indoor season.

Seniors Dani Bland, Dilys Osei and Kayla O'Shea represented the Eagles on the national stage in Boston, MA with Bland notching a pair of All-America honors. Bland recorded fifth and sixth place finishes in the 200m and 60m dashes as she helped the Eagles finish tied for 35th at the meet with seven points.

Osei and O'Shea both made their first career individual event appearances at indoor nationals with Osei finishing 10th in the 60m hurdles with a personal best time of 8.90 and O'Shea clocking in at 16th in the mile, recording a time of 5:09.80.

At the UAA Championships, the Eagles registered their fifth straight third place effort as a unit, totaling two event titles and eight All-UAA finishes across the two-day meet at Brandeis University.

Osei and Bland highlighted the squad with individual event championships with Osei edging out Bland in the 200m dash and Bland capturing her second consecutive indoor 60m dash conference title.

Adding All-UAA performances for the Eagles were sophomore Rebekah Bondi in the 60m dash, freshman Hannah Lansberry in the 400m dash, Osei in the 60m hurdles, senior Paris Wagner in the weight throw and junior Greta Wilker in the shot put.

Emory also continued its recent run of All-Region excellence as 17 athletes combined for 27 USTFCCCA All-Region honors, the most by a single program in the South/Southeast region. Bland, Osei and O'Shea each received a team-high three All-Region selections.

Rounding out the seasonal honors for the Eagles were Bland and classmate Ariana Newhouse as the duo collected Academic All-District honors as presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). In addition, both student-athletes were chosen as Academic All-American by the organization, becoming the 12th and 13th members in program history to receive the award.
