USTFCCCA Release

LUBBOCK, Texas - Two days after competition came to a close at the NCAA Division I Track and Field Championships a total of 11 Texas Tech student-athletes were honored as All-Americans by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Senior Red Raider Kennedy Kithuka (5,000m and 10,000m) along with the Lady Raider trio of Hannah Carson (javelin), Le'Tristan Pledger (100H) and Cierra White (200m) were honored as First Team All-Americans after advancing to the finals and finishing in the Top-8 in their respective events.

Meanwhile, Bradley Adkins (High Jump), JaCorian Duffield (High Jump), and members of the Lady Raider 4x400 Relay Team (Amoy Blake, Montenae Roye-Speight, Tiffany Tarver, and White) were named to the All-America Second Team.

Kithuka finished fourth in the men's 10,000-meter run before going on to finish eighth in the 10,000-meter run just two days later at Hayward Field. He set Texas Tech school records and won Big 12 titles in both events over the season. The Thika, Kenya native is also the first Red Raider in school history to earn All-America First Team honors in either the 5,000 and 10,000 outdoors.

For the Lady Raiders, both White and Pledger are the first female Tech athletes to earn All-America honors in 200-meters and sprint hurdles respectively. Carson became Tech's first female All-America First Team selection in the javelin.

Pledger broke the Texas Tech 100-meter school record at the Big 12 Championships with a time of 12.93 seconds at the Big 12 Championships.
