(New Orleans, La.) – All-America honors for the 2020 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field season were announced on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Dickinson senior Sarah House (Merrimack, N.H./Merrimack) and junior Isabel Cardi (Media, Pa./Strath Haven) were both named 2020 Indoor Track & Field All-Americans, qualifying in the top-eight of the 3000-meters.

House ran to All-Region honors in the 3000 and 5000-meter events and captured silver in the 3K at the Centennial Conference Championships. She posted a pair of top-20 finishes at the 2019 national championships and was named a Scholar Athlete of the Year for the third time, following the 2020 indoor season.

Cardi ranked second on the national qualifying list for the 3000-meters after running to All-America honors in 2019, breaking the school record with a fifth-place finish. Cardi set the record again this season, running to gold with a time of 9:47.34 at the conference championships. She was named the Outstanding Track Performer at the indoor conference championships, adding silver as the anchor of the distance medley relay. Cardi also earned All-Region honors in the 3000 and 5000-meter events 

Normal policies dictate that All-America honors are awarded to student-athletes who score any portion of a team point (top-eight in the final of an individual event or as a member of a top-eight placing relay event) at the NCAA Championships.

In lieu of conduction of the national championship this season, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Committee adopted the following criteria:

  • Based on the selected participants for the national championships initially announced by the NCAA on Sunday, March 8, the following will be recognized as All-America for the 2020 Indoor Track & Field season:
    • Individual events: ALL student-athletes declared and initially accepted into their event.
    • Relay events: Members of ALL relays who produced the performance that was declared and initially accepted into their event.

A total of 675 athletes from 161 different institutions were honored on Tuesday.
