Hakim McMorris earned his first All-America honor at the NCAA Indoor Championships.

Senior Heptathlete Places 12th At NCAAs

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – California track & field senior Hakim McMorris finished up his first All-America campaign today at the NCAA Indoor Championships, earning a spot on the Second Team with his 12th-place heptathlon score of 5052. He became just the fourth Cal man in history to earn All-American honors in the heptathlon and highest finisher in the event since 2011, also ending the season with three of the program’s all-time top 10 indoor marks (No. 2 heptathlon, No. 7 60m hurdles and No. 8 long jump).
This year, the Golden Bears broke school records no fewer than eight times and recorded 39 program top 10 marks for arguably their best overall indoor season in history. They can now fully turn their attention to the outdoor season and the Cardinal Classic next Saturday, which projects to be their first complete meet of that campaign (due to the Cal Opener experiencing a weather-related cancellation two weeks ago). McMorris in particular will look to have another strong outdoor season; he also set three of Cal’s all-time outdoor top 10s and reached the NCAA Outdoor Championships last year, where he finished 19th in the decathlon.
