Conner Named Track All-American

University of Maine women’s track and field standout Corey Conner has been named a United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association second team All-American.

Conner, a senior nursing major from Townsend, Mass., placed 16th in the 5,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships last weekend to earn the distinction.

This is the second All-American honor for Conner. She was previously a second-team selection for the 2011 indoor season after placing 11th in the 5,000 at the NCAA Championships.

Conner adds the All-American honor to cap off an outdoor season that also saw her win the 5,000-meter crown at the America East Championships in a conference and school-record time of 15:59.66, while also taking runner-up honors in the 3,000 at the ECAC Championships.
