NAMPA, IDAHO - Providence College distance standouts David McCarthy (Waterford, Ireland) and Emily Sisson (Chesterfield, Mo.) have earned Second-Team All-America status at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, Saturday at the Jackson's Track.
McCarthy earned ninth place in the mile after battling among the race leaders for much of the endeavor. He crossed in 4:04.05, less than three seconds behind the event champion, Tulsa's Chris O'Hare (4:01.66).
Sisson earned 12th out of 18 competitors in the 3000-meters. She was able to secure a position in the lead pack for much of the race, crossing in 9:25.13. Georgetown's Emily Infeld was the event winner, outkicking the top of the field from the outside to cross in 9:15.44.
The night wraps a stunning indoor season for both Friars. McCarthy broke the Providence College and New England Collegiate records in the mile run with a late-January positing of 3:55.75. He later took two BIG EAST titles with wins in the Distance Medley Relay and the 3000-meters.
Sisson, meanwhile, earned a place in her first indoor national championship with a sparkling effort at the Columbia last chance meet on March 3, finishing in 9:06.04.
The Friars will now gear for the outdoor campaign. The new season begins April 4 at the Stony Brook Quad Meet.
