NEW ORLEANS — Santa Clara track & field trailblazer Zach Litoff rounded out the 2021 season with another program first on Monday. The junior was named Honorable Mention All-America, the first in program history, following his performance in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
Litoff posted an 8:44.66 in the national semifinal to finish in 20th place overall at Hayward Field on June 9. He was the first Santa Clara runner to qualify for the NCAA championship meet and is the fastest Bronco steepler in program history.
"I'm really happy for Zach to be recognized for his efforts on the track," head coach Felipe Montoro said.
