NEW ORLEANS, La.—Joe Postwaite and Destiny Prusky were named United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Associations (USTFCCCA) All-Americans for their performances at the NCAA Division-II Indoor Championships.
Prusky (Newton Falls, Ohio/Newton Falls) earned Second-Team All-American honors in the high jump, becoming the first female All-American in program history and the second in school history since the Storm transitioned to Division-II.
"This is an exciting time for Destiny and the program and a step towards where the women's team is heading in the future," said Storm Head Coach Ryan Rademacher. "As a captain of the team, Destiny has worked years for this accomplishment and it is exciting to see it pay off on the big stage."
Prusky joins swimmer Meri Cizmar as the only female All-Americans in Storm history. In her first Indoor Championships, Prusky cleared a height of 1.68 meters (5'6") to finish in 12th place.
