March 11, 2013
NEW ORLEANS - Following their performances at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships last weekend, the 11 Longhorns who competed brought home a collective 16 All-America honors, the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced Monday.
Leading the way for Texas were juniors Christy Udoh and Briana Nelson, who each earned a pair of first team nods. The two picked up eighth-place finishes in their individual events (Udoh in the 200 meters and Nelson in the 400 meters) and were also members of UT's third-place 4x400-meter relay team.
Senior Kendra Chambers (800 meters), junior Sara Sutherland (5,000 meters) and sophomore Morgan Snow (60-meter hurdles) rounded out Texas' representation on the All-America First Team. Both Chambers and Snow raced to their first individual All-America honors. Sutherland earned her second in the 5,000m after placing fifth in the event at the 2012 indoor national meet.
Junior Shanay Briscoe collected a pair of second team honors for her performances in high jump and the pentathlon. Also earning a spot on the second team were senior Chalonda Goodman (200m), junior A'Lexus Brannon (long jump) and redshirt freshman Kaitlin Petrillose (pole vault).
Texas' 16 All-America awards were the second most of any school behind team champion Oregon, who brought home 19.
