Shanahan Takes 11th at NCAA Championships, Earns All-American Honors
Danielle Shanahan placed 11th in the 5000m on Saturday night to earn second team All-American honors.
Senior Danielle Shanahan became LMU's newest All-American as a result of her 11th-place finish in the 5000 meters at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships being held at the historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. on Saturday.
Competing in a field of 24 of the top runners in the nation, Shanahan ran a time of 15:54.05 to earn the second team All-American selection according to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). Shanahan's time was almost 40 seconds faster than her qualifying time (16:33.71) set at this year's NCAA West Regional.
Student-athletes earn first team USTFCCCA All-America honors by virtue of finishing among the top-eight in their events, including as a member of a relay, while second team All-America honors go to those who finish ninth through 16th.
Karissa Schweizer, a junior from Missouri, won the race with a time of 15:38.93.
