Cornelius, Nolan Named All-Americans At NCAA Championship

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.- Caleb Cornelius and Charlie Nolan led the UW-Oshkosh men's track & field team with All-America honors in day two of the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championship in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Friday (May 24).

The Titans remain in first place with 30 points. UW-Eau Claire is currently second with 26 points and UW-La Crosse follows with 20 points for third.

Cornelius (Jr. • Racine) earned her second All-America medal of the year with a 2.14-meter (7' 0 1/4") height in the high jump, which netted him second place and a personal record. He moved up to second in program history only behind Shannon King's 1999 performance by a quarter of an inch. His first All-America of the year was a third-place spot at the indoor national meet in the high jump.

The Titans sent two athletes to Myrtle Beach for the decathlon and finished the 10-event event with two top-14 finishes. Nolan (So. • Normal, Ill.) was named an All-American for the third time in his career and second time at the outdoor championship after finishing fifth with 6,816 points. He totaled top-eight finishes in six of the events. Aden Sears (Jr. • Eureka, Ill.) scored 6,505 total points and claimed 14th place with five top-eight finishes.

In the preliminary round of the 100-meter dash, Davian Willems (So. • De Pere) took second in 10.28 seconds and will run in the final round of the event on Saturday (May 25).

Isaiah Isom (So. • Lansing, Ill.) threw 16.22 meters (53' 2 3/4") and grabbed 11th place on the event.

Joining Willems in competition on Saturday will be the 4x100-meter relay squad, Steven Potter (Sr. • Oak Creek) and Londyn Little (Jr. • Columbia, Ill.). The 4x100-meter relay crew qualified for the final round with a time of 40.39 seconds on Thursday, Potter ran a field-pacing time of 3:51.49 in the first round of the 1,500-meter run and Little secured his spot in the 200-meter dash when he tied his program record of 20.97 seconds.
