Another Hendrix athlete earns All-America honors

DELAWARE, Ohio — A day after senior Elizabeth Krug took third place and was an All-American in the heptathlon, Hendrix College freshman Victoria Amadi followed with a fourth-place finish in the triple jump at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships.

Amadi, of Denton, Texas, earned her second All-American award of the year, after placing sixth in the Indoor National Championships in March.

Amadi broke her school record on her first jump of the day. She ended the competition with another record — 12.20 meters (40 ft.-.5 in.) — into the wind. Amadi was the highest-placing freshman of the 22 woman field.

Divya Biswal of St. Lawrence won the event at 12.47 meters (40 ft.-11 in.), followed by Bria Halama of UW-La Crosse (12.26 m/40 ft.-2.75 in.) and Hilary Thompson of Concordia-Moorhead (12.21 m/40 ft.-0.75 in.).
