At last weekend’s Track and Field Indoor NCAA Championship, 12 Notre Dame athletes walked away from the competition as All-Americans. The honors went to three relay teams and three individual athletes, all of whom contributed to either the men’s 17th place finish or the women’s 29th. 

Junior Chris Giesting and senior Patrick Feeney in particular collected several points for the Irish as they both placed in multiple events. Giesting placed fifth in the 400m dash (45.74) and contributed the eighth-place finish in the 4x400m relay (3:08.51). Feeney was also on the 4x400m relay team and ran alongside Giesting to finish in seventh in the 400m dash (46.19), but he also ran the second leg of the fourth-place men’s distance medley relay team (9:41.90).
