LANCASTER, PA – Junior Maya Hammonds of the Johns Hopkins women’s track and field team has been named the Centennial Conference Track Athlete of the Year for the outdoor season, the league announced today. Hammonds earned first team honors along with seven other Blue Jays while Bridget Gottlieb was named to the All-Sportsmanship Team. This is the second straight year Hopkins has won the Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year and sixth time overall a Blue Jay has captured the award.

Hammonds earned first team honors for her victory in the 100-meter dash as she won the race with a time of 12.68. The New Hartford, NY native also earned second team laurels for her second-place performance in four other events (200-meter dash, 100-meter hurdles, high jump and long jump). She set new school records in the 200-meter dash and long jump during the outdoor season. Joining Hammonds on the first team are seven other Blue Jays who won events at the Centennial Conference Championships, which JHU won for the ninth straight year.

Seniors Jenn Su and Helen Girod earned first team honors for their victories in the heptathlon and pole vault events, while juniors Erin Brush (800), Ellie Clawson (5,000) and Felicia Koerner (10,000) joined them on the first team. All three juniors also earned first team honors last season. Sophomore Lauren Jacob earned first team recognition for her first-place finish in the 3,000-meter steeplechase while freshman Mikayla Bisignani made it to the first team with her victory in the discus event.

In addition to Hammonds, Therese Olshanski and Annie Gutierrez were honored as members of the All-Centennial Second Team. Olshanski earned second-place finishes in the 800 and 1,500-meter runs while Gutierrez finished second in both the heptathlon and pole vault event.

Marisa Sailus earned a third-place finish in the 200-meter dash while Alexandra Damron earned a third-place finish in the 400-meter dash to earn honorable mention. Joining them with third-place finishes to earn honorable mention accolades are Rebecca Grusby (5,000), Lauren Roberts (100 hurdles), Sophia Cortazzo (pole vault), Catharine Wain (pole vault) and Veronica Montane (javelin).
