RICHMOND, Va. (March 28, 2024) – Northeastern won its first Women’s CAA Indoor team title in February, and the Huskies swept the conference’s year-end honors as voted on by the league’s head coaches. 
 
It marks the first time in league history a women’s program has earned all four major awards – indoor or outdoor – since moving to the current format and the first time since 2013 a team has swept the postseason honors.  
 
Senior distance runner Abigail Hassman was named CAA Women’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Year, and fifth-year multi Dominique Biron earned CAA Women’s Indoor Athlete of the Year honors. In addition, freshman sprinter Savannah Blair received CAA Women’s Rookie of the Year accolades, and head coach Tramaine Shaw was voted CAA Women’s Indoor Coach of the Year by her peers. 
 
Hassman was the only woman to win two individual events at the CAA Championship, finishing first in the 3000m (9:18.67) and 5000m (15:59.22). In addition, the senior set championship meet records in both events en route to winning gold. Furthermore, the senior broke conference and school records in the 3K and 5K during the season, posting personal-best times of 9:09.68 in the 3000 and 15:56.99 in the 5000. Both marks rank in the top 50 in the NCAA this winter. The two-time CAA Cross Country Athlete of the Year adds to her prestigious career with her first year-end honors in
 
Biron earns Field Athlete of the Year honors for the second straight season and has won the award three times in her career between indoor and outdoor. She was named the Most Outstanding Field Performer at the CAA Championships after winning the pentathlon (3,956 pts) and finishing runner-up in the long jump (6.11m). Biron recorded a season-best mark of 4,062 points in the pentathlon to rank 23rd in the NCAA this winter. Additionally, the fifth-year multi had season-best marks of 6.11m (20-00.50) in the long jump and 1.67m (5-05.75) in the high jump. Biron also placed fifth in the 60m (8.67) at the CAA Championship and helped the Huskies to a fourth-place finish in the relay (3:44.72). 
 
Blair was the top-finishing freshman in the 60m and 200m dash at the CAA Championships, qualifying for the finals in both events. Blair placed fourth in the 60m dash (7.51) before running to a seventh-place finish in the 200 (24.22). Additionally, the freshman broke the Northeastern program record in the 60-meter dash with a personal-best time of 7.46 and posted a PR of 24.12 in the 200m. She is the first CAA Rookie of the Year for the Huskies Indoors and the first freshman to win the award from Northeastern since 2018 Outdoors. 
 

Shaw – the 2018 CAA Women’s Outdoor Coach of the Year – collects her first CAA Women’s Coach of the Year honors for Indoor . In her seventh season as head coach, she led the Huskies to their first CAA Indoor Track & Field team title in program history.
