The U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association revealed its All-American honors for the 2020 NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field season on Tuesday, with a total of five Tar Heels earning the distinction.
Daniel McArthur–the two-time defending ACC champion in the shot put–was named an All-American for the second time in his career after qualifying for the 2020 NCAA Indoor Championships, an event he finished fourth in back in 2019.
The men’s 4 x 400 relay team consisting of Brandon Cachon, Ryan Saint-Germain, Ari Cogdell and Isaiah Palmer also earned All-American honors after winning the ACC title and securing their bid to the NCAA Indoor Championships.
Because performances at the NCAA Indoor Championships typically dictate All-American selections and that event was canceled, everybody on the start list for anticipated events was named an All-American–with no distinctions for First Team, Second Team or honorable mention.
