Shafer runs to All-America honors


Allison Shafer

PENSACOLA, Fla.University of Southern Indiana sophomore Allison Shafer (Plainville, Indiana) earned All-America honors with her 15th-place performance at the NCAA II National Championships Saturday morning.

Shafer's finish was the second-best finish at the national championships by a USI women's cross country runner in school history. Jennifer Galbraith finished 14th at the 1994 national championships.

She also is just the fifth women's runner to earn cross country All-America honors and the first since 2004.

Shafer's run got off to a bit of a snag early in the race as her heel was clipped causing her to stumble, bounce off a tree, and fall to the ground. Nevertheless, Shafer was not fazed as she got back up and into mix. She finished the 6k course with a time of 20 minutes, 47.40 seconds, less than three seconds away from a school record.

In 2006, Shafer was the GLVC Runner of the Year after winning the conference's individual title. She also finished second at the NCAA II Great Lakes Regional Championships and earned All-Region honors.
