USI’s Hough, Nolan Race To All-America Status

ALLENDALE, Mich.—University of Southern Indiana women’s sophomore Cameron Hough (Olney, Illinois) and men’s senior Austin Nolan (Evansville, Indiana) each ran to All-America honors with their respective efforts Thursday night at the NCAA II Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Hough finished seventh in the women’s 10,000 meters with a time of 34 minutes, 29.51 seconds to solidify herself on the first team when the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association makes its official announcement next week. The award marks Hough’s second All-America honor of the year after she earned All-America accolades on the cross country course last fall.

Nolan is collecting his first-career athletic All-America honor after an 11th-place finish in the men’s 10,000 meters. He completed the race in 29:45.36.

Senior Jennifer Comastri (Indianapolis, Indiana) also closed out her career with a 21st-place finish in the women’s 10,000 meters. Earlier this year, Comastri won the GLVC and Midwest Region titles on the cross country course and was named GLVC and NCAA Midwest Region Runner of the Year honors.

The Screaming Eagles final run in Division II takes place Saturday at 4 p.m. (CDT) when two-time national champion Titus Winders(Mansfield, Indiana) competes in the men’s 5,000 meters in Allendale, Michigan.
