Ader earns All-America honors after finish in long jump
Nevada track and field sophomore added to her historic season tonight with a 12th place finish in the long jump. The finish earned her second team All-American honors, making her the first from Nevada to accomplish the feat twice in a single year, and just the second to earn the honors twice.
“I definitely wanted to make it to the final. My last jump was good but I faulted, so that’s really disappointing. I’m really positive that I will do well tomorrow and on Saturday.”
Ader opened up the competition with a leap of 19’ 10.75” (6.06 meters), and followed it up with her best jump of 20’ 4.50” (6.21 m). Ader would foul her final attempt, solidifying her 12th place finish.
During the indoor season, Ader earned second team All-American honors in the high jump with a ninth-place at the national championship. Ader joins Ali McKnight as the only two members of the Pack to ever earn multiple All-American honors. Ader is the only one to accomplish the feat in the same year.
The native of Affolterbach, Germany will be back in action tomorrow with the heptathlon. The heptathlon begins at 12:30 p.m. PT with the 100m hurdles. Live coverage will be available on ESPN3, and results will be available at nevadawolfpack.com/tf.
