Congratulations are in order for 15 University of Kentucky student athletes who have picked up All-American honors for the 2019-20 indoor track and field season.
These 15 student athletes brought home 20 honors, tied for the fifth-most in the NCAA. Eight athletes from the women’s team earned 11 AA honors, and seven student athletes earned nine AA honors for the men’s team. The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association made the announcement Tuesday.
Abby Steiner earned three honors for her times in the 60-meter, 200m and the 4x400m relay, which is tied for the most honors in the country by any individual. Langston Jackson, Lance Lang and Megan Moss had two honors each.
Due to the cancellation of the 2020 NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships, the USTFCCCA ruled that there would be no distinction of first-team, second-team or honorable mention to this year’s recognitions.
