Senior Nick Hall is an All-American in both the mile run and the DMR, and one first-team honor each was earned by senior Bryn Campbell (weight throw), junior Hunter Heaton (DMR), freshman Alex Hill (weight throw), junior Daniel Roberts (weight throw), sophomore Tyler Sievert (DMR), junior Elijah Talk (shot put) and freshman Nick Zak (weight throw).
Eagle men earning second-team All-American status were senior Jordan Crayon in the weight throw, and senior Columbus Millet, freshman Paul Murray, Pringle and sophomore Devin Snowden in the 4x400 relay.
On the women's side, senior Megan Tomei is a second-team All-American in the weight throw.
