GENEVA, Ohio — The Eastern Oregon University track and field team finished the indoor season with six All-Americans after strong        performances at the National Championships.

Sarah Hanchett and Alma Garcilazo each hit All-American status in the women’s 800 meters. Garcilazo cruised to a second-place finish in the women’s 800 meters with an EOU record time of 2:11.48. The junior lowered her own school record by 2.5 seconds. Garcilazo, a native of Umatilla,  entered the meet as the three seed.

Hanchett, the 16th seed in the 800, finished sixth with a personal record performance. The sophomore’s time of 2:13.57 was only 0.34 of a second behind third place. Hanchett’s time shattered her previous PR by 5.52 seconds. The event was won by defending national champion Helen Crofts of Simon Fraser University with a time of 2:04.94.

Ryan Booth was named an All-American after his men’s 800-meter finish. Booth crossed the line in fifth place. The junior ran a tactical race and finished with a time of 1:53.81. Booth finished in seventh last year at the national championships, narrowly missing All-American status.

Karlee Coffey won the women’s 3,000 meters and has now earned All-American status at the NAIA National Championships for cross country, outdoor track and field, and indoor track and field. It is the Coffey’s fourth All-American title.

Robbie Haynie won a pair of national titles and was named the Male Performer of the Meet. Eastern Oregon begins its outdoor season Saturday at the NNU Crusader Invitational in Nampa, Idaho.
