Joey Uhle Recognized with USTFCCCA All-America Status

Following his top-eight finish in the pole vault at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships last weekend, Air Force junior Joey Uhle was awarded first-team All-America status by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, the USTFCCCA office announced this afternoon (March 17).

Uhle, who cleared 17’8½” at last weekend’s national championship meet in Albuquerque, N.M., was awarded first-team status after finishing seventh in the field of 16. It’s the third consecutive championship meet where Uhle has garnered All-America status, after claiming second-team honors at both the indoor and outdoor championship meets during his sophomore season.

With his second consecutive indoor All-American selection, Uhle became just the third Air Force vaulter to collect All-America status in back-to-back indoor championship meets, joining Paul Gensic (2004-2005) and Cale Simmons (2012-2013). It also marks the third straight year that at least one member of the Air Force pole vault team has captured All-America status.

He was one of eight Mountain West athletes to garner All-America distinction (one of four to be awarded first-team status). Any athlete that claimed a scoring finish (a share of first through eighth) was awarded first-team status, while those placing ninth through 16th were named second-team selections.
