2019 NCAA DIII Outdoor Track & Field All-America Honors
NEW ORLEANS – All America honors for the 2019 NCAA Division III 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 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships this past weekend in Geneva, Ohio, took home honors.
A pair of first-time winners brought home team titles from the SPIRE Institute as the UW-Eau Claire men and the Loras women earned their inaugural outdoor crowns.
It should come as no surprise that both the Blugolds and the Duhawks led their respective genders in All-America merits. The men from UW-Eau Claire and the women from Loras both combined for 13 All-America performances. What makes it even more remarkable is that both of those programs topped 79 others who received honors.
Three other programs had double-digit honorees and they all came from the women’s side of things: George Fox and Nebraska Wesleyan each had 12, while Emory earned 11.
While 11 athletes finished top-8 in three events, only three did so in four: Favor Ezewuzie of Wheaton (Ill.), Sarah King of George Fox and Gabrielle Noland of Loras.
On a conference level, no league performed better than the WIAC as programs from its ranks amassed 51 honors. The American Rivers Conference wasn’t too far behind with 48, while the UAA was a distant third with 40.
