NCAAs: Cutler Earns All-America Honors In High Jump

LINCOLN, Neb. -- University of Massachusetts Dartmouth freshman Kevin Cutler (Attleboro, Mass.) tied for seventh place in the high jump to earn All-America honors this afternoon at the 2014 NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships inside the University of Nebraska's Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Cutler became the second Corsair to earn All-America honors in the high jump, joining current teammate Adam Jones (Amesbury, Mass.) who accomplished the milestone at the 2013 national indoor meet.

Cutler cleared 2.04 meters (6-08.25) on his third attempt to tie Wilmington's (Ohio) Christian Patterson and Benedictine's (Ill.) junior Billy Sipek.  The freshman from Attleboro, Mass. and four other student-athletes were unsuccessful in their three attempts at the next height (2.08m).  The fourth through seventh places in the 15-person field were determined by their previous jumps.

Carthage senior Trevor James won the national championship with a leap of 2.14 meters (7-00.25).
