Louf-Woods Earns Second All-American Award at National Championships

LA CROSSE, Wisc. – The eighth-ranked University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's track and field team wrapped up the 2018 Division III Outdoor National Championships on Saturday, earning the third All-America award of the event to mark the first time since 1986 that the Corsairs had three such recognition at a single championship.

UMass Dartmouth finished the event with 13 points, knotting the team with John Carroll and DePauw for 21st amongst the 72 scored teams at the event.

Senior Jared Louf-Woods (Salem, Mass.) collected the third All-America honor of his career to finish the season strong for the Blue and Gold. The Salem-native registered a throw of 59.30 meters (194-07) to finish sixth overall in the 20-person field. Jared advanced to the finals on his third attempt but fouled on two of his last three attempts in the championship round. With that, he becomes the third Corsair to earn All-America honors in the hammer throw, joining Rich Volkman (1985) and Stephan Baptista (1986, 1987). 

Louf-Woods (2) and Jordan Entwistle (Northborough, Mass.) each earned All-America honors at the 2018 Division III Outdoor Championships, marking the first time since 1986 that the Corsairs had three All-America awards at a single championship.
