2021 NCAA Division I Cross Country All-America

NEW ORLEANS — All-America honors for the 2021 NCAA .Division I Cross Country season were announced on Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Athletes from member institutions earned All-America recognition by finishing among the top-40 athletes in their gender’s respective races this past weekend at the 2021 NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships in Tallahassee, Florida.

Team titles went to Northern Arizona’s men and NC State’s women. It was the Lumberjacks’ fifth crown in the past six years, while the Wolfpack topped their first NCAA podium (NC State previously won cross country titles as a member of the AIAW back in 1979 and 1980).

Both NAU and NC State snagged a meet-high five All-America honors this past weekend. That means their entire scoring lineups finished among the top-40 athletes. Three of the Lumberjacks placed in the top-15 – Abdihamid Nur (seventh), Nico Young (11th) and Drew Bosley (13th) – as did two Wolfpack athletes – Kelsey Chmiel (sixth) and Katelyn Tuohy (15th). Remaining All-America athletes for both teams included NAU’s George Kusche (37th) and Brodey Hasty (39th), and NC State’s Alexandra Hays (22nd), Hannah Steelman (24th) and Samantha Bush (32nd).

Six programs earned a total of three All-America honors: third-place Oklahoma State, fourth-place Arkansas, as well as Harvard on the men’s side; second-place BYU, third-place New Mexico, and seventh-place Minnesota on the women’s side.

Twenty-six different women’s programs had at least one All-America athlete, compared to 25 men’s programs. Conversely, nine different men’s programs had multiple All-America efforts, compared to seven women’s programs.
