Renard First Army All-American Since 2011
Army West Point junior Michael Renard placed 14th in the discus throw at the NCAA Championship, earning him Second Team All-American honors.
The cow posted a personal record distance of 57.28 meters, becoming the first Black Knight to earn All-America honors since Domonick Sylve placed 11th in the 110 meter hurdles in 2011.
The achievement marks the conclusion of a tremendous year for the Army throws program, one that was highlighted by four program records set in the outdoor season.
Renard's achievement in the national event was the first by a discus thrower in program history, and the first All-American performance by an Army thrower since Adam Burke claimed the honor in back-to-back javelin finals in 2003 and 2004. Read more.
