Ramsey Is 1st Three Season All America Since 2002
St. Lawrence University junior Dan Ramsey finished eighth in the 5000 meter run at the NCAA Division III Championships in Berea, Ohio on Saturday, becoming the first Saint athlete to earn All America honors in all three intercollegiate seasons since Kris Enwright in 2002.
Ramsey, who was 15th in Thursday's 10,000 meters, ran 14:44.02 in the 5000 and was just five seconds out of a top-four finish in the race. Connor Kamm of Williams won the event in 14:28.06. Ramsey ran 32:45.95 in the 10,000 meters, running as high as fourth in the pack before falling back late in the race.
Ramsey earned All America in cross country in the fall with a fourth place finish and was fifth in the 5000 meters in the indoor championships in March. The top eight in each event in the NCAA Track and Field Championships earn All America honors.He joins Enwright, who was a cross country All America in the fall of 2001, earned All America in the indoor championships at 800 meters and outdoors at 1500 meters in 2002 and Marty Dumoulin, cross country All America and 10,000 meters All America indoors and outdoors in 1987 as the only Saint athletes to earn All America honors in three seasons of the same academic year.
