Garn named honorable mention All-American
March 23, 2015Tweet
Senior middle distance runner Jesse Garn has been named an honorable mention All-American for the 2015 indoor track season by the United States Track and Cross Country Coaches’ Association (USTFCCCA). He earned the honor by advancing to the NCAA Division I Track & Field Championship Meet, which was held at the University of Arkansas.
The accolade caps a standout indoor track season for Garn. He was recently named the USTFCCCA’s Men’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Year for the first time in his career. On Feb. 14, his 800 time of 1:46.98 punched his ticket to the NCAA Division I meet. It wound up being the sixth-fastest time in the nation during the indoor track season.
Garn is the 10th Binghamton Division I athlete to earn All-America honors. He joins fellow track athletes Rory Quiller, who was a three-time All-American in the pole vault in 2007 and 2008, and Erik van Ingen, who was a four-time All-American in the middle distance events in 2011 and 2012. Quiller was also the 2008 indoor national champion in the pole vault.
Four wrestlers have also earned All-America honors, including Josh Patterson (2009), Justin Lister (2010), Donnie Vinson (2012) and Nick Gwiazdowski (2012).
Binghamton’s other three Division I All-Americans are: Yun Qu (women’s swimming, 2002), Kevin McKeown (men’s lacrosse, 2004) and Graham Munro (men’s soccer, 2005).
