AUSTIN, Texas – In the final race of her sophomore season, Daisy Liljegren of the Boston University track & field team placed 16th in the 10,000m race to earn Second Team All-American distinction at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship.
Her time of 34:13.36 marks the third occurrence this season she ran under 34:15. Her USTFCCCA Second Team All-American status, which is awarded to those who finish in 9th to 16th place, backs up her performance at the 2022 national championship in which she was an All-American Honorable Mention.
Liljegren is the first BU woman since 2013 to earn All-American status in the 10K and is the first BU woman overall since 2014.
Liljegren will be back in action in the fall when the BU cross country teams begin their 2023 season.
