Jacob Deavers of the men’s track & field team battled cold and rainy conditions Saturday night, finishing seventh in the 400-meter hurdles final at the NCAA Division II National Championships to receive All-American recognition.
The junior from Lake Elsinore posted a mark of 54.81. The winner of the race, Lincoln’s Steve Banton, crossed the line in 51.96.
“It’s been a long and successful year for our program,” Broncos’ head coach Troy Johnson said. “Jacob has some big upside for next year. He knows how to race and I know he’ll be motivated to return and top his performance here at nationals.”
