NEW ORLEANS, La.-The
U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association has announced the
2013 NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field All-Americans, based on their
performances at the Indoor Track & Field Championships. The list of 288 men
and 266 women who earned the honor included ORU's Jack Whitt, who finished as
the runner-up in the men's pole vault competition.
Whitt claimed his
sixth NCAA All-American honor and seventh USTFCCCA honor, having never finished
lower than sixth when he has qualified for the NCAA championships. The
runner-up finish was his second at an NCAA event, and an improvement from his
third-place finish at the indoor championships a year ago.
During the indoor
season, Whitt also set a new school, Southland Conference, and OU facility
record during the 2013 SLC Championships in Norman.
