TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa junior Chris O'Hare earned Division I Cross Country All-America honors by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association after finishing 20th at the NCAA Championships, the organization announced Monday.

O'Hare ran the 10K in a personal-best time of 29:46.4 to score 13 points for the Golden Hurricane, which finished seventh as a team. The top-40 finishers at the NCAA championships were named All-Americans.

This is the first Cross Country All-America honor for O'Hare, and third overall. He previously won All-America honors earlier this year in the track and field indoor mile, and the outdoor 1,500-meter run. O'Hare is the second Tulsa men's Cross Country All-American, and first since John Beattie in 2008.

This season, O'Hare won the individual Conference USA Championship on Oct. 29, and the Midwest Regional individual championship on Nov. 9. He also won the individual title at the Notre Dame Invitational on Sept. 28.
