Three Carroll student-athletes earned All-American honors at the NCAA Division III National Outdoor Championships May 23-25 in Geneva, Ohio. Grant Marton finished second in the men’s 800-meter run, junior Emily Uitenbroek earned third in the women’s hammer throw and David Lembke placed fourth in the men’s high jump.
This was Marton’s first outdoor All-American award after three times as an All-American for indoor events. A senior from New Berlin, he finished his run with a time of 1:52.01 on the final day of the championships at the SPIRE Institute.
Lembke, who won the national title in the indoor high jump in Boston in March by jumping over 7 feet, earned his first outdoor All-American award with a height of 2.06 meters (6 feet, 9 inches). A junior from Pewaukee, he was selected as one of the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) Men's Outdoor Track & Field Athletes of the Week in early April.
Uitenbroek, a junior from Kaukauna, Wisconsin, threw a distance of 53.05 meters (174 feet), shattering her own prior school record of 52.81 meters (173 feet) to become Carroll's first All-American in the women’s hammer.
Freshman Sarah Gomez rounded out the team’s efforts by placing 10th in the women’s high jump. It was the highest finish ever by a Carroll women’s freshman high jumper. She is also the first freshman high jumper from Carroll to qualify for the both the indoor and outdoor national championships.
