For the men, that's Jordy Williamsz, Sam Ellison, Chris FitzSimons, and Sam McEntee. On the women's side, first-team honors were won for the DMR by Angel Piccirillo, Michaela Wilkins, Nicky Akande, and Emily Lipari. In addition, second-team All-American status was won by Rob Denault in the mile, Sam Ellison in the 800 meters, and Emily Lipari over 3000 meters.
