Crossroads League Hauls in 29 All-American Honors at Outdoor Nationals

 INDIANAPOLIS – The Crossroads League sent over 100 student-athletes to compete in the 2017 NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships and secured 29 All-American performances, highlighted by a national championship from Bethel pole vaulter Daniel Wojciechowski.

Wojciechowski backed up her indoor championship by taking first place in the pole vault once again inside Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium to record the CL’s lone individual title of the outdoor season.

The Crossroads League placed three teams inside the top-25 and had a total of seven teams score inside the top-50 in the men’s and women’s team standings. The Bethel men highlighted that list by finishing 11th overall, while the men’s squads from Taylor and Marian also recorded top-25 showings by tying for 23rd.
