For the second consecutive day Cobber senior Nicole Plante (Sr., Fort Benton, Mont.) earned All-American honors at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field National Meet held at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa.

Plante qualified for the finals in the event by posting a distance of 129-6.0 in the second preliminary heat. She then needed to better that mark in the finals to earn the All-American award.
