James Plummer (SR/Columbia, South Carolina) competed in the shot put finals on Saturday, taking home 4th place and an All-American honor. His national championship in the weight throw and his 4th place finish in the shot put was good enough to earn Plummer NAIA “Outstanding Male Athlete” at the Indoor National Championships.
Amara Taylor (SO/Cedar Rapids, Iowa) finished in 7th place in the 60m Hurdles finals. That finish was good enough for Taylor to garner All-American honors with a time of 8.88 seconds
