NEW ORLEANS – All-America honors for the 2018 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field season were announced Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Student-athletes earned First-Team USTFCCCA All-America status by virtue of finishing among the top-8 in their events – including as a member of a relay team – at this past weekend's NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Second-team honors were bestowed upon those finishing ninth through 12th. Ninth- and 10th-place relay teams also earn the distinction.

Both Andrew Mudd and Noah VanderVeen earned all-american honors from the USTFCCCA following their performances this past weekend at the 2018 NCAA Division II Outdoor Championships in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Mudd capped-off his Cardinal career with a runner-up finish in the decathlon, collecting 7,184 points for his fourth career all-american honor. He finished fifth in the heptathlon this past indoor season and the 7,184 points is the higest decathlon total of his career. 

VanderVeen, who was an indoor all-american in 2018 as well, earned the USTFCCCA Second Team honor with an 11th place showing at this year's outdoor championships. He cleared a height of 2.09 meters in the high jump to finish in that spot.
