Birmingham, Ala. - March 10, 2018 - Racing at the 2018 NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships, Springfield College's Courtney Luscier (Pittsfield, Mass.) earned the third all-america honor of her career in the 60 meter dash, as the senior took fourth overall with a time of 7.67 seconds on Saturday afternoon at the Birmingham CrossPlex.
Luscier has now established herself among the Springfield College women's indoor track and field greats, as she joins Barbara Swallow, Nikki Hay and Beth Bowler as the only student-athletes to earn three all-america honors throughout their careers at Springfield College. Luscier was also seventh in the event as a sophomore in 2016 and fourth as a junior in 2017.
Earning the fourth-fastest prelim time of 7.65 seconds on Friday, which was a new Springfield College women's indoor track and field program record, the Sports Biology major crossed in 7.67 seconds to take fourth overall. Winning a national title in the event was UMass Boston's Wadeline Jonathas, as she posted a time of 7.41 seconds, finishing ahead of Quinn Harlan of Roanoke, who clocked in at 7.52 seconds, while Birmingham Southern's Karmin Shute was third with a 7.61.
Combined with Jack Pinho's all-america performance in the mile on Saturday, this marks the fourth All-American for the Pride under the direction of second-year head track and field coach Mike Miller, as Luscier has now posted back-to-back all-america performances in 2017 and 2018, along with Alex Niemiec's runner up finish in the high jump in 2017.
