EUGENE, Ore. – Nevada Women’s Track & Field fifth-year Nicola Ader closed the book on her decorated collegiate career with one more honor, Saturday. Ader claimed her seventh-career All-America honor, earning second-team distinction, with a ninth-place finish in the Heptathlon at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Ader opened the day in 14th place, and climbed five spots by the end of Saturday. Competing through persistent rain for much of the day, she hit a top mark of 18 feet, 10.5 inches, in Long Jump, to start the day, then posted her second top-five finish of the competition, hurling the javelin an even 138 feet to take fifth, and claim 707 points, moving her into 10th place.

In the final event, the 800 Meters, Ader ran a personal-best 2:21.42, 12th-best among the field, moving into ninth and finishing with 5,647 points. She came up just 45 points shy of BYU’s Halley Folsom for eighth place, and a first-team All-America honor.

Florida’s Anna Hall claimed Heptathlon gold with 6,385 points.
