Kaylie Clark Earns All-American Status

by Stephen Batcher, UMM sports information director 

Kaylie Clark, Garden Plain, Kansas, not only set her personal best in the biggest meet of her career, but also became an All-American. Clark threw  43.07m to take sixth place in the javelin at the NCAA DIII Championships last weekend. She also broke her own school record.

The two-sport athlete becomes the third Morris athlete to earn All-American status in the 2012-13 school year. Brendon Foss , Hancock, earned College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) All-American status in football, and Linda Keller, Hawick, was an NCAA All-American in cross country last fall. Basketball player Emily Mehr , Aitkin, was also a DIII  Fifth Team All-American.
