COMPLETE LIST OF ALL-AMERICANS

Four Middlebury women's track & field athletes recently earned All-American honors by virtue of their finishes at the 2019 NCAA Indoor Championships in Boston. Seniors Rory Kelly (Winnetka, Ill.) and Abigail Nadler (Chicago, Ill.), along with sophomore Gretchen McGrath (Londonderry, N.H.) and rookie Cassie Kearney (Rockland, Mass.) were each a part of a top-eight finish in the meet held in the Reggie Lewis Center.

The women's distance medley relay team of Nadler, McGrath, Kearney and Kelly raced to the line with a time of 11:45.37 to place fifth.

During the championship final of the 3,000-meter run, Kelly crossed the line with a school-record time of 9:45.85, finishing in second place out of 12 runners. That mark lowered her time of 9:47.28 which she set on February 23 during the Division III New England Championships.
