2020 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field All-America
NEW ORLEANS – All-America honors for the 2020 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field season were announced on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Normal policies dictate that All-America honors are awarded to student-athletes who score any portion of a team point (top-eight in the final of an individual event or as a member of a top-eight placing relay event) at the NCAA Championships.
In lieu of conduction of the national championship this season, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NCAA Division III Executive Committee adopted the following criteria:
- Based on the selected participants for the national championships initially announced by the NCAA on Sunday, March 8, the following will be recognized as All-America for the 2020 Indoor Track & Field season:
- Individual events: ALL student-athletes declared and initially accepted into their event.
- Relay events: Members of ALL relays who produced the performance that was declared and initially accepted into their event.
A total of 675 athletes from 161 different institutions were honored on Tuesday.
On a broad scale, 10 different institutions had 20 or more total honorees, headlined by UW-La Crosse with 36. Washington (Mo.) and Williams weren’t too far behind with 30 apiece. Wartburg was the only other program with 25 or more honorees with 26 (Loras and MIT both had 24).
When you break it down by gender, you’ll see that UW-Oshkosh and Washington (Mo.) earned the most nods on the men’s side with 19 each, while Williams held it down on the women’s side with 20. Both the Bears and the Ephs had three or more athletes earn multiple All-America honors to boost their totals, compared to the Titans, who had 19 different athletes snag one honor each.
