Ehrhardt, Guerrant Earn All-America Honors
Both Spartans named Second-Team All-American.
EAST LANSING, Mich. -
Redshirt-senior Tim Ehrhardt and redshirt-sophomore Nick Guerrant were both named Second-Team All-American on Monday, March 12, by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Ehrhardt, a native of Addison, Illinois, placed 11th in pole vault with a mark of 5.40m (17’8.5”) and was the only athlete from the Big Ten Conference to place in the event. This season, Ehrhardt broke the indoor school record in pole vault with a 5.60m (18’4.5”) clearance, good for the fifth-best pole vault in the nation.
He earns his third indoor All-America honor, and fifth overall. Most recently, he was last named an All-American at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Championships, when he claimed 14th place in the decathlon with 7,455 points.
Guerrant, from Portage, Michigan, took 13th place in the heptathlon with a score of 5,519 points. He was the runner-up at Big Ten Indoor Championships, breaking the school record with a score of 5,758 to qualify for NCAA Championships.
This is his first All-America honor after making the first appearance at NCAA Championships of his Spartan career. The last time a Spartan claimed All-America honors in the heptathlon was in 2015, when Ehrhardt accomplished the feat.
Michigan State track & field returns to action on March 30-31, kicking off the outdoor season at the Raleigh Relays in Raleigh, North Carolina.
