CENTRAL ISLIP, NY – Seven different student-athletes on the University of the District of Columbia Women's Outdoor Track & Field team earned All-East Coast Conference honors across eight different events, as the ECC announced the First & Second All-Conference Teams on Thursday, May 25th. The top two finishers in each event at the ECC Championship meet were named First Team All-Conference, while the third and fourth place finishers earned Second Team All-Conference distinction.

Each of the four members of the champion 4x400M Relay Team – Deasia Greer, Shannell Hibbert, Temera Duncan and Niasia Harding – earned First Team All-Conference honors. The team of all freshmen ran a time of 4:02.56, out-pacing the field by a little over 16 seconds.

Hibbert and Greer each also earned two other individual First Team All-Conference distinctions. Hibbert was 2nd place out of 22 competitors in the 200M dash with a time of 25.82s, and she was 2nd place out of 13 competitors in the 100M Hurdles with a time of 14.92s. Greer, meanwhile, was 2nd place out of 19 competitors in the Long Jump event with a 5.08M leap, and 2nd place out of eight in the Triple Jump event with an effort of 11.00M.

Harding added one individual First Team All-Conference award to her 4x400M Relay honor, as she placed 2nd out of eight in the 400M Hurdles with a time of 1:05.71.

Duncan, meanwhile, was Second Team All-Conference in two events: the 200M dash and the 400M dash. She was 4th place out of 22 competitors with a time of 26.10s in the 200M, and she was 3rd place of 12 competitors with a time of 58.46s in the 400M.

Three other Firebirds – junior Stacy-Ann Rowe, senior Brittany Okon, and senior Iman Scott, each earned Second Team All-Conference as well. Rowe was 3rd out of 16 racers in the 100M dash with a time of 12.71s, Okon was 3rd place right behind Greer in the Long Jump event with a leap of 5.05M, and Scott was 4th place of 17 competitors in the shot put event with a throw of 10.88M.
