Safer Selected CACC Track Athlete of the Year, Four Rams Named All-CACC

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Sophomore Kali Safer of the Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) women's track & field team was named the CACC Track Athlete of the Year and was one of four All-CACC honorees for the Rams. The All-Conference award winners were announced on Tuesday by the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference.

Safer grabbed two spots on the All-CACC first team and was joined by junior Erin Young and senior Lindsey Carl. Junior Meghan Horan was a member of the All-CACC second team.

The All-CACC teams are determined by the results of the CACC Championships. The winner in each event earns first team honors with the runner-up being chosen to the second team.

Safer won the 5000 meters and the 3000 meter steeplechase at the conference meet. Her time of 12:21.25 in the steeplechase was a school record. Safer posted a winning time of 19:36.11 in the 5000 meters. It is her first time on the All-CACC Team. This season, the sophomore also won the steeplechase (12:21.57) at the Osprey Open.

Young captured the title in the 1500 meters, coming in at 4:55.26. It was her fourth top-10 finish in the event this year. In 2018, the junior made the All-CACC second team in the 1500.

Carl was the champion in the high jump for the second straight season, recording a height of 1.62 meters. It was her best mark of the season. She won the event twice and placed in the top 10 six times. Carl was also a second team honoree in 2017.

Horan took second in the 10,000 meters with a time of 41:57.71. It was her first time running the event collegiately. The All-CACC nod is the first of her career.
