Pitt's track and field members participated in the NCAA championships this past week and earned numerous All-American honors in the process.

Leading the way was Desmond Palmer. Palmer reached the finals in both of his events - the 400m hurdles and 110m hurdles. He finished fifth in the 400m hurdles event and seventh in the 110m hurdles. That earned him First-Team All-American honors in both events.

Gillian Schriever set a new Pitt record in the 10K race, finishing 13th overall and winning second team All-American honors. In addition, the women's 4x400m relay team and hammer thrower Andin Fosam both received All-American honorable mentions.
