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.
