USTFCCCA Tabs Galeano to All-Region Team

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCA) announced its All-Region honorees for the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field season and The Catholic University of America junior Andrea Galeano was selected to the All-South/Southeast Region Team.

Catholic's third-year thrower earns the distinction in the hammer. Galeano posted the longest toss of the year in the Landmark by nearly 10 feet as she won at the Gallaudet Invitational with a mark of 156'5" in late April.

She followed it up with an All-Landmark First Team performance as she was victorious in the hammer throw for the second-consecutive year.

Galeano finishes as the third-best hammer thrower in the region in 2018.

The top-five individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region distinction, in addition to each of the members of the region's top-3 relay teams. The regions used for this award – Atlantic, Central, Great Lakes, Mideast, Midwest, New England, South/Southeast, West – match those used during the cross country and indoor track & field season.
