Nett Claims All-American Status on Final Day of Indoor Championships

BROOKINGS, S.D. – A handful of Mounties competed on the third and final day of the 2024 NAIA Indoor Track and Field National Championships. The highlight of the day came in the men’s shot put when Tanner Nett earned All-American honors for the second consecutive indoor season finishing 6th overall.

Today’s competition marks the end of the 2023-2024 Indoor season as Eastern Oregon Track and Field now shifts their sights towards the spring outdoor season. Competition for the outdoor season will begin in two weeks when the Mounties open the season at the Pacific Northwest Invite in Corvallis, Oregon.

Elizabeth Grandle was the only Mountie to compete on the women’s side on day three taking flight in the high jump. Grandle finished 14th clearing 1.60 meters in her second attempt of the day.

The first Mountie to compete on day three was Justin Ash who made an appearance in the men’s 3,000 meter finals. Ash improved upon his prelim time and finished with a career best time of 8:28.20. The time moved him up to second all time in the EOU record book, but unfortunately left him one spot shy of the podium and All-American honors finishing in 9th place.

Tanner Nett continued his dominant run as one of the nation’s best athletes in the shot put earning All-American honors for the second consecutive year in the indoor season. A throw of 16.65 meters earned Nett a 6th place finish and spot on the podium. This is now Nett’s third career All-American honor (indoor 2023, outdoor 2023, indoor 2024).
