Calvin sophomore Sadie Heeringa has been named a Division III All-American for women's indoor track and field.
The All-America honors for the 2020 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field season were announced this week by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Normal policies dictate that All-America honors are awarded to student-athletes who score any portion of a team point (top-eight in the final of an individual event or as a member of a top-eight placing relay event) at the NCAA Championships.
In lieu of conduction of the national championship this season, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NCAA Division III Executive Committee adopted the following criteria:
Based on the selected participants for the national championships initially announced by the NCAA on Sunday, March 8, the following will be recognized as All-America for the 2020 Indoor Track & Field season:
Individual events: ALL student-athletes declared and initially accepted into their event.
Relay events: Members of ALL relays who produced the performance that was declared and initially accepted into their event.
A native of Grand Rapids and a graduate of Grand Rapids Christian High School, Heeringa is receiving All-America honors in the mile run which she was scheduled to compete in at the 2020 NCAA III Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Heeringa took second in both the 800 meters and mile run at the 2020 MIAA Indoor Track and Field Championships this past February.
