June 10, 2013
LONG BEACH - Long Beach State freshman Willie Alexander earned USTFCCCA All-America distinction for the 2013 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field season the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced Monday.
All-America honors are awarded for performances at the final site of the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which took place this past weekend in Eugene, Ore. Individuals who earn any portion of a team point at the national championships, or reach an eight-entrant final, garner USTFCCCA first-team All-America recognition. Second-team All-America honors are handed out to those whose final placing in the national meet range from ninth to 16th place. Those who participated at the final site but did not place in the meet's top-16 are listed as honorable mention All-Americans.
Alexander received honorable mention status after finishing 19th in the men's long jump at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. He advanced to the national meet with a 12th-place showing at the NCAA West Preliminaries, where he established a lifetime-best 24-11.25. Alexander is the first 49er freshman to earn All-America honors since Kristy Kierulff accomplished the feat in 1995.
