NEW ORLEANS, La. - Air Force senior Jim Walmsley was awarded All-Region recognition, the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced today (Nov. 14). Walmsley claimed his first all-region selection after placing 21st at the NCAA Mountain Region Championships last Saturday.
The USTFCCCA awarded 450 all-region accolades to the top 25 individual finishers from each of the nine NCAA Regional Championship meets that took place across the country this past weekend.
Walmsley clocked a 10K time of 31:14.0 to place 21st in the 115-runner NCAA Mountain Region Championship meet on Saturday in Provo, Utah. It is the fifth straight season that the Falcons have had at least one runner on the all-region list.
Paced by Walmsley's 21st-place finish, the men finished eighth in the team standings at the NCAA Mountain Region Championships to conclude the 2011 season.
