Thomas Staines Wins Another National Championship! Pack Cross Country/Track & Field Finish a Historic Year

TrackAll five members of the Colorado State University-Pueblo men's and women's track and field programs who raced Saturday earned First Team All-American honors, while Thomas Staines (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) won his fifth national title on the final day of the 2019 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Kingsville, Texas. The men tied for 10th, while the women tied for 39th.
 
Staines won his second NCAA Division II Outdoor Championship in the 800m, which was his fourth straight title in the event (twice an indoor champion). He has five national championships to his name after anchoring the distance medley relay team to the top of the podium at this year's indoor championships. He is the 11th athlete at the Division II level to win back-to-back 800m outdoor championships. 
 
Staines posted a time of 1:50.03 to gather First Team All-American honors and 10 team points for the Pack. The ThunderWolves finished with 22 points to finish in a tie for 10th. 
 
The men also tied for 10th at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships, while the top 10 placement is the fifth in program history among indoor or outdoor championship appearances (NCAA and NAIA). The ThunderWolves fell just shy of the 1967 outdoor team that recorded 25 points and the highest finish at seventh. 
 
Adding three points in the 800m was senior Devundrick Walker, as he crossed the finish line in 1:51.44 to place sixth. He finishes his senior year collecting a national championship with the DMR and indoor and outdoor First Team All-American honors in the 800m run. 
 
The other nine points came from junior Marcelo Laguera (Chihuahua, Mexico), as he followed up his runner-up performance in Thursday's 10,000m run with an All-American effort in the 5000m race Saturday. He scored one point when he crossed the finish line in eighth with a time of 14:34.51. 
 
The women tied for 39th with five points, which is the program's best outdoor national championship finish in the NCAA Division II era. The 2011 team finished 46th with four points. The indoor squad posted a 12th-place finish to secure the best performance in program history at a national championship. According to available records, these championships mark the first time in program history the ThunderWolves have had two outdoor First Team All-Americans.
 
Sophomore Yasmine Hernandez (Johnstown, Colo.) scored four points when she raced to fifth in the 800m with a time of 2:10.50. She gathered First Team All-American recognition for the second time in her career, as she was a member of the women's distance medley relay team that placed fourth at the indoor championships. 
 
Sophomore Hailey Streff (Madison, S.D.) raced to eighth in the 1500m to earn All-American honors. She posted a time of 4:38.54 to gather her second time on the podium this year, as she was also a member of the DMR. The sophomore ran the 19th fastest time in the event this year to make nationals, was ranked 13th in the championships field and was 12th out of the qualifying group, but raced to finish eighth in the end. 
 
The outdoor national meet puts a bow on a historic 2018-19 for CSU-Pueblo men's and women's cross country and track and field. In the end the programs combined for five national championships and 19 NCAA All-American awards. The Pack men can also tout as the only program in NCAA Division II with a national champion in five straight cross country and track and field national championships (2018 indoor – Staines, 2018 outdoor – Staines, 2018 cross country – Laguera, 2019 indoor – Staines and DMR, 2019 outdoor – Staines).
