UAA Announces 30th Anniversary Women's Track and Field Team

The University Athletic Association has announced its 30th Anniversary Women’s Track and Field Team. Sixty-seven student-athletes, representing all eight institutions, earned the honor with an Association-best 21 coming from Washington University.

UAA Women's Track and Field 30th Anniversary Release

The team consists of each student-athlete who was named Most Outstanding Performer at the UAA Indoor Track and Field Championship or UAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship, or won an individual event at the NCAA Division III Indoor or Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Among those honored is Eleena Zhelezov of Brandeis University, who finished her career with 15 All-America honors, 14 UAA individual event titles, and nine NCAA Division III titles. She captured eight NCAA triple jump titles, sweeping the event at every indoor and outdoor NCAA championship from 1992 to 1995.

Daisy Ogede (2015-17) of Washington University and Jessica Lyon (1989-91) of University of Rochester won three consecutive UAA Indoor Track and Field Championship Most Outstanding Performer awards. Ogede also earned the award twice at the UAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship, while Lyon added one outdoor honor. 

Leslie Kindling (1993-95) of Case Western Reserve University earned the Most Outstanding Performer honor three consecutive years at the UAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship and won two NCAA titles.

Zhelezov (1994-95), Esther Erb (2007-08) of Case Western Reserve University, Kahlilah Jennings (1996-97) and Theresa Ford (2012-13) of Emory University, and Delaina Martin (2006-07) of Washington University each won back-to-back UAA Most Outstanding Performer indoor accolades.

June Parks (1990-91) of Brandeis, Debora Adjibaba (2012-13) of Emory University, and Claire Ray (2009-10) of University of Chicago garnered consecutive Most Outstanding Performer honors at the UAA outdoor championship. 

In 30 years, UAA teams have totaled 19 top-10 finishes at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships and 13 more at the outdoor championships. Washington University swept the NCAA indoor and outdoor titles in 2017, marking the first women’s national track titles for an Association school.
