Josh Janusiak’s incredible run of success continues at Lawrence University, with an All-American (seventh-place) finish at the NCAA Division III Track and Field Championships today.

Details here. From the story …

The Lawrence University track and field star met the challenge on Thursday morning and raced to All-America honors at the NCAA Division III Championships at Veterans Memorial Field. Janusiak (South Milwaukee, Wis./South Milwaukee) finished seventh in the 10,000 meters in 31:02.02, and the top eight runners are All-Americans.

“I felt good when I started passing a couple of guys later in the race,” Janusiak said. “That’s when I was feeling the worst, and I think others were feeling their worst as well. That was a confidence booster to pass a couple of guys at that point.”

Once Janusiak improved his position during that stage of the race, he latched on to sixth place and held that until he was challenged by a host of runners. He finished more than nine seconds ahead of the ninth-place finish to maintain his position as an All-American.
