COMPLETE LIST OF USTFCCCA DIVISION III WOMEN'S ALL-AMERICANS

Junior Abigail Nadler (Chicago, Ill.) of the Middlebury College women's cross country team was honored when the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced its list of All-American recipients following the NCAA Championship. The top-40 finishers in the 6K race garnered All-American status. Nadler helped guide the Panther women to an 11th-place among 32 teams competing at the meet hosted by Principia College at Principia North Farm Course in Elsah, Illinois.

Nadler led the Panther women with a seventh-place finish in a race consisting of 279 runners, covering the 6K course with a time of 21:00.9. She is a three-time All-American after her 15th-place effort last fall and 28th-place run in 2015. Nadler finished ninth at the NESCAC Championship with a time of 22:25.7 over the 6K course in late October. This season, she finished in the top-nine spots in five of the seven races she ran, including a win during the Aldrich Invitational hosted by Middlebury in September. She ended this fall with her third-consecutive fifth-place effort at the NCAA regional meet (20:49.4) and her seventh-place effort in Illinois.
