DES MOINES, IOWA - Two members of the Providence College women's track and field team have earned All-America status at the 2012 NCAA Outdoor Championships at Drake Stadium.
Saturday, Friar sophomore Emily Sisson (Chesterfield, Mo.) placed fourth in the nation in the 5,000 meters, crossing in 16:18.24. Her time was less than seven seconds off the pace of the event winner, Dartmouth's Abbey D'Agostino (16:11.34).
Sisson, by placing in the top eight in the event, earned First-Team All-America status.
With the collegiate season complete, Sisson will now turn her attention to the US Track and Field Olympic Trials later this month in Eugene, Oregon.
Also representing the Friars in the NCAA 5,000-meter final was Charlotte Ffrench O'Carroll (Dublin, Ireland). The senior placed 20th with a clocking of 17:19.04.
On Friday, junior Shelby Greany (Suffern, N.Y.) added another chapter in her steeplechase success, placing tenth in the event with a posting of 10:19.54. The effort earned Greany Second-Team All-America honors.
The efforts wrap a remarkable outdoor season for the three Friars. Last month, both Greany and Sisson became BIG EAST Champions in their respective events, while Ffrench-O'Carroll captured the 3000-meters at the prestigious Penn Relays.
