Nolan, Collins, and Men's 4x400 Relay Team Earn All-American Accolades

Senior Errol Nolan earns First Team All-America honors in the men's 400m

March 11, 2013

HOUSTON – University of Houston sprinters Errol Nolan and Leshon Collins, and the men’s 4x400 relay team were awarded All-America honors from the U.S Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) for their performances at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships on Friday and Saturday.

Nolan led the way with a first-place finish in the men’s 400-meter dash with a time of 45.75 to become the only student-athlete in program history to receive First Team All-America honors in the event. Along with this accolade, the Rosenberg, Texas native, received Second Team All-America honors as the leadoff leg in the men’s 4x400 relay team. Last season, Nolan received an All-American nod when he placed sixth in the 400m.

Earning second team honors were Collins and the men’s 4x400 relay team. In his first time competing for the Cougars at NCAA Championships, Collins placed 14th with a time of 6.77 in the men’s 60-meter dash. He is the first student-athlete in Houston Track and Field history to receive this recognition in the event.

The men’s 4x400 relay team comprised on Nolan, Garrett Hughey, Kelvin Furlough, and Eric Futch ran the 10th fastest time (3:08.18) at the championships. The school-record breaking team is the 11th Houston team to earn All-American status.

The USTFCCCA honored 288 men and 266 women with All-America honors. First-team honors were given to those who placed in the championships’ top eight in an event or were a member of an eight-person final. Second team honors were earned by those who finished between ninth and 16th place.

A complete list of honorees can be found here.
