SEATTLE – To bring home a team trophy from an NCAA track meet requires a big collective effort. As the Huskies just pulled it off for the first time in 93 years, they not surprisingly had their largest collection of All-America honors ever at a single NCAA Championship. Washington racked up fourteen First Team All-America honors and twelve Second Team All-America honors for a total of twenty-six.
USTFCCCA First and Second Team distinction is based on finishing in the top-eight (first team) or placing 9-16 (second team) at the championships. The UW men’s team finished fourth overall with 31 points, both program records at the NCAA Indoor meet. On the men’s side, the Huskies had 11 First Team All-Americans, tied with Florida for the second-most in the NCAA behind national champion Arkansas. The men added five more Second Teamers.
Under the current first and second team All-America format, which began in 2011, Washington’s previous high for men’s team All-America honors from one NCAA meet was nine from the 2016 indoor meet. For a full year, combining indoors and outdoors, the record was 14, which UW surpassed this year in just the indoor meet.
The women’s team garnered three First Team All-America honors and seven Second Team honors for a total of ten as the women tied for 24th-place at the meet with eight points. The ten All-America honors for the women’s team also matches the 2020 indoor squad for most from one meet.
From an overall perspective, no program earned more All-America honors (First-Team and Second-Team combined) than Arkansas with 36. Texas was next with 29, as Washington (26), Florida (25) and Stanford (20) also ended up with 20 or more plaudits for their efforts in the Land of Enchantment.
