BOSTON, Mass. – Senior Andrea Galeano of the Catholic women's track and field team became Catholic University's first Women's NCAA Indoor Track & Field All-American on Friday afternoon, while Moravian College junior Carly Danoski ran in the preliminaries for the 800m race.
Galeano placed sixth in the women's weight throw with a mark of 17.75m, which is her season-best and second best in her career. Galeano reflected on her remarkable achievement saying, "It's been an incredibly special senior year for me and such an honor to represent Catholic at NCAA's for the second time. I really couldn't have done this without the constant support of my coaches, teammates, and family. They constantly challenge me and push me to be my best self and I'm so grateful for that."
Galeano and the rest of the women's track and field team will look to continue their success as they transition to the outdoor season on Saturday, March 23 at the Goucher Classic.
Danoski, competing at the NCAA Championships for the second time in her career and first time indoors, placed third in her heat of the 800-meter run and 16th overall with a time of 2:17.84. The top two in each of the three heats and the next two fastest times qualified for Saturday's championship race.
Danoski's run finishes the indoor season for the Greyhounds. Moravian is set to begin its 2019 outdoor season on Saturday, March 23 at the West Chester University Ram Invitational.
