A former Perkins-Tryon state track champion has gained All-American status with the rest of his relay team from Emporia State University following action at last weekend's NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Allendale, Mich.
Brady Huckabay, a redshirt freshman at ESU, was a member of the 4x100-meter relay team that finished in eighth place. The group ran the race in 40.77 seconds. In addition to Huckabay, the relay team also includes A. J. West, Duke Tibbs, and Ryan Dickson. The time was a season-best for the team.
The group qualified for the national meet following its third place finish in the Drake Relays earlier this month. The team ran the race in 40.06 seconds, which was a season best at that time.
ESU, located in Emporia, Kan., combined for seven All-American honors in four events at the NCAA meet. This was also the 12th straight year the Emporia State men's team scored in the national meet.
