Senior Georgia Ellenwood brought home her fourth indoor first-team All-American honor on Friday by finishing third in the pentathlon with 4381 points. The Langley, British Columbia native started off the action in the 60 meter hurdles with an 8.55 second finish to take eighth place and collect an impressive 1006 points.
Ellenwood then picked up a fourth-place finish in the high jump with her highest mark of the season of 1.78m followed by a sixth-place finish in the shot put with a throw of 12.31m. The senior finished out the day with an incredible jump of 5.96m to earn the sixth-place spot and a personal record time in the 800 meters of 2 minutes 14.28 seconds to secure her third-place finish overall.
It marked the fourth time in her career that Ellenwood earned first-team All-America honors in the pentathlon, becoming only the second Badger to accomplish the feat.
I'm happy with the results today. I had to battle through the entire thing. I knew that every girl there was talented and deserved to be there, so I had to have an impressive meet.
To medal at NCAAs is something that I don't think I can ever really wrap my head around. I always knew I was capable, but to go out there and actually execute is something that I will always be proud of. My confidence and mentality are on a different level this year, so I'm happy that it was able to show today.
