Ana Tucker added another All-America honor to her growing list of accomplishments as a Hope College runner.
The junior from Midland, Michigan (H.H. Dow HS) became an All-American for the third time in track and field on Thursday at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.
Tucker finished eighth in the 10,000 meters by clocking a time of 36 minutes, 13.36 seconds.
Ari Marks of Wellesley College (Mass.) took first with a run of 34:50.55.
It is the fourth time a Flying Dutch runner has claimed All-America honors in the 10,000 meters.
Marcia VanderSall earned the honor with sixth-place finishes in 1993 and 1991. Jennifer Ernst placed seventh in 1999.
On Saturday, Tucker will run for her second All-America honor in the outdoor 5,000 meters. Tucker finished fourth at nationals in the event in 2021. The race is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
In 2020, Tucker was awarded All-America honors after the indoor nationals were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
