Pleger earns All-America honors
Bowling Green State University's Brooke Pelger has been named a first-team All-American by The US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
First-team honors are awarded to those who earn any portion of a point at the national championships or reach an eight-entrant field. Second-team All-America honors are handed out to those who place ninth through 16th at the national championship. Those who participated at the national championship but did not place in the top 16 are named honorable mention.
A redshirt sophomore, Pleger placed seventh at the NCAA Division I outdoor track and field national championships in the hammer throw.
Pleger is the fifth student-athlete in BGSU women's track and field history to earn All-American status.
