2019 NCAA Division II Cross Country All-America Honors
NEW ORLEANS – All-Americans for the 2019 NCAA Division II Cross Country season were officially named on Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Athletes of member institutions who finished in the top-40 of their respective races this past weekend at the 2019 NCAA Division II Cross Country Championships in Sacramento, California, earned the distinction.
Team titles went to the Colorado School of Mines men and the Adams State women, while Ezra Mutai of American International and Stephanie Cotter of Adams State won individual titles.
Colorado School of Mines and Adams State dominated the proceedings on Saturday as they combined for 13 All-America honors. The Grizzlies, who tied the lowest score by a winning team in meet history, brought home seven of those honors themselves, while the Orediggers earned six in posting the largest margin of victory in the past 37 years.
Grand Valley State finished runner-up in the women’s race and earned five All-America honors itself, which led the rest of the program in the nation.
From an overall standpoint, no institution out of the 37 that had at least one All-American had more honorees than Adams State with 10. Colorado School of Mines wasn’t too far behind with nine, while Grand Valley State amassed eight.
On a conference level, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference crushed everybody else, as expected. Teams from the RMAC combined for 24 All-America honors, which was 11 more than the GLIAC had as the runner-up.
