TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior Nathan Schrader has been named to the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-America Team, released Tuesday by the national organization.
In lieu of conduction of the national championship this season, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the USTFCCCA awarded all 2020 NCAA Division III Indoor National Championship qualifiers with All-American status. Schrader was declared and initially accepted into the men's weight throw for competition scheduled for Winston Salem, N.C. A total of 675 athletes from 161 different institutions were honored on Tuesday.
Schrader qualified 19th in the men's weight throw with a school record mark of 58' 10 3/4" set during the 2020 indoor season. The HCAC Men's Field Athlete of the Year helped Rose-Hulman win its 22nd consecutive men's HCAC track and field team championship in February, for a team that has won 12 straight titles outdoors and 10 consecutive championships indoors.
Schrader made two NCAA Division III National Championship appearances in his career, after recording a top-20 finish in the javelin outdoors last spring.
