Two Saints Earn All-America Honors at Track and Field Nationals
Caroline Raue ’13 and Divya Biswal ’15 each earned All-America honors in the 2013 NCAA Division III Track and Field Championships at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse on Saturday. Raue finished sixth in the 3000 meter steeplechase, running a career-best 10:36.72, while Biswal placed eighth in the triple jump. The women's track and field team had its largest representation at the championships in program history with five student-athletes and were joined by men's track and field hurdler Jake Fredericks '13, who competed in the 110-meter hurdles and missed out on finals by the slimmest of margins, one one-thousandth of a second. For men's lacrosse, Cam Scullen ’13 and classmate Brian Wilber earned All-America Honorable Mention status by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.
