2019 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field All-America Honors
NEW ORLEANS – All America honors for the 2019 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field season were announced Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Athletes of member institutions who finished in the top-8 of their respective individual events and as part of a relay team at the 2019 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field Championships this past weekend in Gulf Shores, Alabama, took home honors.
It was a clean sweep for the programs from British Columbia as their men and women brought home team titles from Mickey Blackwell Stadium.

Neither the Thunderbird men nor women totaled the most All-America honors, though. That distinction belonged to the Wayland Baptist (Texas) men and the Southern-New Orleans (La.) women with 16 and 20 honors, respectively.
The Pioneers were one of six men’s teams with double-digit merits. Others were William Carey (Miss.) with 15, Indiana Tech with 14, British Columbia with 13, Tennessee Wesleyan with 12 and Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) with 11.
The Knights were one of six women’s programs with 11 or more honors. Other included British Columbia with 19, Indiana Tech with 17, Wayland Baptist (Texas) with 13, Concordia (Neb.) with 13 and Xavier (La.) with 11.
There were 22 athletes who finished top-8 in at least three events, but only three who did so in four: Dillan Elkins of Tennessee Wesleyan, Kevin Hallmon of Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) and Shalysa Wray of Xavier (La.).
