NEW ORLEANS-- The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association released their 2017 Outdoor Track & Field All-Region Awards list on Monday. For the first time in school history, a Ram has their name on the roster.
Freshman Grahm Johnson (Red Wing, Minn./Red Wing) wrapped up his tremendous rookie season with another accolade when he was named to the USTFCCCA NCAA Division III All-Region team. Johnson finished the season ranked fourth in the central region in the discus throw.
The USTFCCCA bestows its All-Region awards upon the top five performers in each track and field event across eight regions. Johnson's top mark of 48.82 meters was produced at the 2017 UMAC Track & Field Championships where he shattered the conference meet record en route to the league title.
Along with his discus title, Johnson won the men's shot put and earned the 2017 UMAC Field Event Athlete of the Meet.
