NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Coast Guard women's track & field team had two athletes named to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Region team for the 2018 season.

Senior Gabbie Troise (weight throw) and freshman Kaitlyn Mooney (300) earned the honors after finishing up a strong 2018 season.
