PROVO, Utah – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced today that Nachelle Mackie and Allyson Anderson claimed All-America honors at the 2012 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa.

Mackie completed her season sweep of the 800 meters, claiming the National Championship with a time of 2:01.06, the best time in the NCAA this season. She also won the 800 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships to become the first BYU athlete to win the same event in the same season at the two championship meets.
