BIRMINGHAM, Ala.–Birmingham-Southern track & field stars Robert Willett, Tiarra Goode and Aaron Sherrill were named NCAA Division III All-Americans by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) after their performances at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championship last week in La Crosse, Wis.

Willett, who graduated last weekend, won the national title in the men's 800-meter run, and Goode, a junior from Huntsville, earned All-America accolades in three different events (100- and 200-meter dashes, and 100-meter hurdles). She placed second in the 100m hurdles, third in the 100m dash, and eighth in the 200m dash. Sherrill, also a recent graduate, was fourth in the men's javelin throw.

Goode was one of only 15 student-athletes in the nation to become an All-American in three different events.
