STORRS, Conn.- The UConn women’s track and field squad had five standouts named Second Team All-Americans on Monday afternoon as announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Victoria Flowers, Brigitte Mania, Celina Emerson, Ana Groff and Lindsay Crevoiserat each earned the honor after competing at the 2013 indoor NCAA Championships this past weekend.
Flowers is the most decorated Husky out of the group as this is her fifth All-American title and fourth indoor for the weight throw. She finished tenth in the nation with a hurl of 20.13 meters in the weight throw on Friday. This honor caps off a historic senior campaign for Flowers who also earned the weight throw crown at the BIG EAST, New England and ECAC Championships, while also reaching the top of the podium in the shot put at the New England and ECAC Championships.
Mania and Emerson each earned their third All-American honor after being part of UConn’s DMR squad which finished 12th with a time of 11:25.09. Mania and Emerson each have earned their three accolades as a member of the indoor DMR teams. This marks Groff’s first All-American honor.
Crevoiserat brings two Second Team All-America titles back to Storrs with her after competing in the distance medley relay and also finishing 15th in the 3,000 meter run in a time of 9:37.11. The sophomore now possesses three All-American accolades as she participated in last year’s outdoor 5,000 meter run.
The Huskies will kick off their outdoor campaign on March 29 at the Raleigh Relays.
