EMU's track & field teams placed six athletes on the All-Region Team, as named by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

To be named All-Region, an athlete must be ranked in the top-5 of an individual event in the region according to the final TFRRS data.

EMU All-Region Women
Hannah Nichols (Fredericksburg, Va./Chancellor) – 800m

EMU All-Region Men
Grant Amoateng (Bristow, Va./Patriot) – triple jump
Tyler Denlinger (Perkasie, Pa./Dock Mennonite Academy) – 800, 1500m
Connor Faint (Winchester, Va./Millbrook) – 400m hurdles
Jamel Howard (Leesburg, Va./Tuscarora) – high jump
Jared Nisly (Lancaster, Pa./Lancaster Mennonite) – steeplechase

Faint and Amoateng, who represented Eastern Mennonite University at the NCAA Championships last weekend, were each the top-ranked individual in their event in the South/Southeast Region. Nisly, a senior, won his first All-Region award in his final season, while Nichols and Howard each won their first as a freshman. Denlinger, who owns five EMU records, continued a stellar ending to his career, earning multiple All-Region honors for the first time.
