With several of North Carolina's fall sports teams adding spring seasons to their 2020-2021 schedules, The Daily Tar Heel will be recapping some of the action from this spring's busy weekends in roundups every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Track and field (Thursday-Saturday)
The North Carolina track and field team had a strong showing at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships last week in Fayetteville, Arkansas, with six different Tar Heels earning All-American honors.
The first of those honors came from fifth-year Daniel McArthur in the men's shot put. McArthur's 19.84m throw was good for fourth in the tournament, equaling his finish from the 2019 NCAA Championships and earning him the third All-American honors of his career.
Next came the men's 400 meters, where senior Isaiah Palmer's time of 46.57 seconds earned him 14th place at NCAAs and a second-team All-American nod. Palmer would later earn first-team honors as a member of the men's distance medley relay team, also including graduates Thomas Ratcliffe, Brandon Tubby and Allen Siegler. Their time of 9:25.80 set a new school record and was good for sixth in NCAA history.
Finally, senior Anna Keefer got second-team All-American honors, finishing the women's long jump with a distance of 6.35m and earning her 10th place.
