2021 NCAA Division III Cross Country All-America

NEW ORLEANS – All-America honors for the 2021 NCAA Division III 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 III Cross Country Championships in Louisville, Kentucky.

Team titles went to Pomona-Pitzer’s men and Johns Hopkins’ women. It was a record-tying seventh team title for the Blue Jays, who matched SUNY Cortland for the most by a women’s program in NCAA DIII history. The Sagehens notched their second title in a row.

Pomona-Pitzer snagged a meet-high six All-America honors this past weekend. The Sagehens, who won by 32 points, were led by Colin Kirkpatrick in 10th place with Derek Fearon and Lucas Florsheim not too far behind in 12th and 14th place, respectively. Ethan Widlansky took 24th for Pomona-Pitzer, while Dante Paszkeicz (30th) and Paul McKinley (31st) also came through.

Johns Hopkins tied for the second-most All-America laurels for its gender. The Blue Jays, who won by just two points over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, saw a top-10 effort from Ella Baran (ninth) and top-25 finishes from Alex Ross (20th) and Paloma Hancock (21st).

Speaking of the runner-up Athenas, they captured a gender-high four All-America plaudits. In fact, the top-4 runners for CMS all placed in the top-30: Meredith Bloss (13th), Natalie Bitetti (16h), Riley Harmon (19th) and Emily Clarke (26th).

Other than CMS, Johns Hopkins and Pomona-Pitzer, four different programs earned three or more All-America medals: runner-up MIT (five), third-place Williams (three) and fifth-place UW-Whitewater (three) on the men’s side; fifth-place Washington (Mo.) on the women’s side.

Twenty-six different women’s programs earned at least one All-America honor, compared to 25 different men’s programs.
