Etheridge turned in the second fastest time in ESU history with a 7.90 to place third in the 60m hurdles. It is his third All-American honor after placing second in the 60 meter hurdles indoors and winning the 110 meter hurdles national championship outdoors last year.

Katie Mona placed seventh in the women’s 800 meters with a time of 2:12.04 to earn her third All-American honor of her career. She placed fifth indoors and seventh outdoors in the 800 meters last year.
