Kentucky Women’s T&F Earns Best NCAA Finish Since 1994

racers track3 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (3/11/13) – The No. 20 Kentucky women’s track and field team finished the NCAA Indoor Championships with 10 team points, the highest total at the National Championship Meet since 1990, on Saturday.
 
Kentucky finished the meet tied for 20th-place in the women’s team standings. The Wildcats earned the program’s highest team finish since 1994 when they also finished tied for 20th.
 
Cally Macumber took third in the women’s 3,000 meters final to add six points to the Kentucky cause on top of the four she contributed on Friday night as the anchor in the distance medley relay.
 
Macumber earned first-team All-America honors on the back of her top-8 finish.
 
Keith Hayes took seventh in the men’s 60-meter hurdles final with a time of 7.74 to earn two points, and also secure first-team All-America honors.
 
Chelsea Oswald just missed scoring position in the 3K as she posted a time of 9:13.65 to place ninth.
 
Macumber and Oswald pinged around the crowded 16 runner field as the pack stayed together on the six-lane track for much of the early going in the 3K.
 
When the race entered the final stages Kentucky’s top women’s distance duo began picking off competitors one-by-one as the field began to thin.
 
Macumber would leave it until the bell lap to make her big move. The Rochester Hills, Mich., native surged with 100 meters remaining executing a great sprinter’s lean to edge 2012 NCAA Cross Country Champion Betsy Saina at the finish line for third.
 
All five of Kentucky’s NCAA participants earned first-team All-America status this weekend as they all finished top-8 in at least one event. Second-team All-America honors are handed out to those whose final placing in the national meet range from ninth to 16th place.
 
Macumber and Oswald also picked up All-American certificates for their DMR performance alongside Morganne Phillips and Allison Peare.
