Kicking off the top three of The Terrier Twelve are the All-America track & field All-America achievements of seniors Tahari James and Marisa Ryan. Both earned All-America honors in both the indoor and outdoor seasons, marking the first time in BU history that two women have done that in the same year.

At last month's NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, Ryan finished fourth in the 10,000m run with a 33:54.38 time while James' 13.30m mark in the triple jump finals clinched ninth place. James' distance of 13.68m in the preliminaries set a new school record and qualified the senior for the Olympic trials.

Ryan also earned All-America status during the indoor season, running a 9:12.83 time in the 3000m for fifth place. James' 13.42m distance in the triple jump took sixth place at indoors.

They were the first Terriers to take All-America honors in both the indoor and outdoor seasons since Christine Stief achieved the feat in 1995.

The senior duo was instrumental in helping the Terrier women claim their third straight America East indoor team title in addition to their first outdoor title since 1993.
