Mansfield University track and field freshman Abigail Taylor earned All-Atlantic Region honors for the 2022 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field season, announced on Wednesday.

Taylor finished fifth in the Atlantic Region in the triple jump with a mark of 11.67m to place third at the Hopkins Loyola Invitational in April. The jump also made Taylor the Mountaineer program-record holder.

Top-5 individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region honors, in addition to each of the members of a top-3 ranked relay team.

Taylor landed on the podium at the 2022 PSAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships with a jump of 11.08 meters, placing fifth.

The freshman was named Team MVP and Mansfield University Winter Female Athlete of the Year for her outstanding performance during the indoor season, where she collected a silver medal and All-PSAC honors in the triple jump after she broke her own school record hitting a 11.43m mark.
