BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Senior Dom Nda (Pittsfield, Mass.) made history Saturday afternoon, as he became the first sprinter in program history to earn All-American honors at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field National Championship.
Nda earned a seventh-place finish in the men's 60M dash to earn All-American honors for the first time in his career. He's only the second male track & field athlete to earn Indoor Track & Field All-American honors. Rob Grieco won the shot put at Indoor Nationals in 1998.
Nda got off to a strong start out of the blocks, but couldn't quite hold on with the lead pack of six runners. In the end, Nda finished in 6.96 seconds for a seventh-place finish overall.
With the seventh-place finish, UMass Boston men's track & field earned two team points and currently sits 41st overall.
UMass Boston men's track & field will return to action on Friday, when they compete on Day 1 of the University of Miami Hurrican Invitational in Miami, Florida.
