Deptford graduate Tyler Garland, a sophomore at Rowan, placed third in the 110-meter high hurdles Saturday at the NCAA Division 3 track championships outside Cleveland.
This is Garland’s first All-Amerca honor and the eighth time in the last nine years a Rowan high or intermediate hurdler has earned All-America status.
Overall, this is the 18th time a Glassboro State or Rowan University high hurdler has earned All-America honors at NCAA Division 3 nationals!
Running into a 0.8 wind, Garland ran 14.40, finishing just 3-100ths of a second behind winner Connor Troyer of Mount Union.
Eddie Mahana of St. John Fisher also ran 14.37, finishing 1-100th of a second behind Troyer (14.366 to 14.367). Troyer and Mahana are both juniors.
Garland’s PR is 14.28 from the All-Atlantic Champions with a 1.0 assisting wind. This was his first outdoor NCAA meet. He was 15th indoors at 60 meters this past winter.
