Five Blue Jays earn All-America honors at NCAA track championship meet

Senior Monagle leads way with top-four finishes in two events

Four members of the Johns Hopkins University women's track and field team earned All-America honors with top-eight finishes at the NCAA championship meet in La Crosse, Wisc., over the weekend, helping the Blue Jays to a 13th-place finish, the best in the history of the program.

Senior Annie Monagle led the way with two top-four finishes, taking fourth in the 1500 in 4:22.95, a school-record time and the 10th-fastest in Division III history. She followed that up with a third-place finish in the 800 in 2:09.09.

Teammate Maggie Shelton, a junior, was sixth in the 800, junior Emily Swenson took fifth in the javelin, and freshman Hannah Oneda placed eighth in the 5000.

The five individual All-America honors were the most in a single outdoor season for Johns Hopkins, which had earned five All-America honors since 2003.
