March 14, 2016

NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana Tech redshirt sophomore Jermey Hicks was honored by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Monday as he received second team All-America honors after finishing 16th in the 60m dash at the NCAA Indoor Championships.

He becomes the first Louisiana Tech student-athlete to receive All-America honors since Trey Hadnot claimed second team honors in 2014, finishing ninth in the 200m. This marks the first All-America honor for the New Orleans native.

Hicks received the 32nd All-America honor a Louisiana Tech track and field student-athlete has received since 2010.

Athletes who finished first through eighth at the NCAA Indoor Championships this past weekend in individual events and as part of relay teams were designated First Team All-America. The rest of the finishers were Second Team All-America — unless he or she did not finish or was disqualified from competition and in that case, was named Honorable Mention.

The indoor season has completed for Louisiana Tech and the outdoor season will begin in Ruston, Louisiana on March 18-19 when LA Tech hosts the Jim Mize Invitational.
