ALBUQUERQUE, N.M — Maribel Caicedo (8.29) competed in the 2023 NCAA Division I Indoor National Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Friday and finished thirteenth to become the first All-American in the women’s 60m hurdles in program history.
Caicedo is the most recent women’s indoor All-American since Charisma Taylor earned back-to-back nods in the triple jump from 2020 and 2021.
Caicedo, the graduate student from Ecuador produced the only sub-eight-second 60m hurdles time in Cougar history. Caicedo had tons of success in the hurdles this season by rewriting the Cougar record book twice
“Not what she hoped. But given the situation with three false starts, being an NCAA All-American is still pretty awesome for your first ever NCAA meet,” Head Coach Wayne Phipps said.
Congratulations to Maribel Caicedo for earning All-American status. Caicedo had arguably one of the best indoor seasons in recent years!
