• Sycamores honored — All five Indiana State athletes competing in the 2012 NCAA outdoor championships last week earned All-American status, which was announced this week by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Brandon Pounds, a junior from Indianapolis, earned first-team All-American honors with a throw of 212-feet-1-inch (64.66 meters) for a sixth place finish in the men’s hammer throw Friday. Pounds established the Indiana State record in the event with a throw of 214 feet, 4 inches (65.34 meters) at the Auburn Tiger Track Classic on April 6. He finished fifth in the NCAA East with a throw of 213 feet and won the MVC outdoor title in the event with a throw of 209-10.
Pounds was named an indoor second-team All-American this year after placing 16th in the weight throw in the NCAA indoor championships.
Greggmar Swift, a sophomore from Bridgetown, Barbados, earned second-team All-American honors as he was 10th in the men’s 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.60 seconds. Swift ran the third-fastest time in school history of 13.49 in winning the event at the MVC outdoor championships. He was fifth in the quarterfinals in the NCAA East in 13.55 after running 13.57 in the opening round.
Felisha Johnson, a junior from Indianapolis, picked up two All-American recognitions at the NCAA championships as she was named a first-team All-American in the women’s shot put and received honorable mention All-American recognition in the women’s discus. Johnson broke the Indiana State record in the shot put with a heave of 56-111⁄4 that propelled her into fifth place in the NCAA championships. She also placed 22nd in the women’s discus with a throw of 155-4.
She placed second in the discus in the NCAA East with the second-best throw in ISU history of 180-6 and was fifth in the shot put with a throw of 54-63⁄4. She was third in the discus (170-3) and third in the shot put (54-31⁄4) at the MVC outdoor championships.
Johnson was an honorable mention All-American at the 2011 NCAA outdoor championships after placing 18th in the shot put.
