Eleven members of the Stanford men's and women's track teams earned All-America honors after the Cardinal's track teams finished sixth and eighth, respectively, at last weekend's NCAA Outdoor Championships. Check out a list of All-Americans by team here. 

Chris Derrick earned first team honors in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters for the men, finishing fourth in both events in Des Moines, Iowa. Amaechi Morton was the runner-up in the 400-meter hurdles with a season-best time of 49.08. Jake Riley finished fifth in the 10,000. JT Sullivan and Benjamin Johnson placed fourth and seventh, respectively, in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Sullivan's time of 8:37.74 was the third-fastest in Stanford history. 

On the women's side, Stephanie Marcy placed sixth in the 10,000 meters, Kathy Kroeger placed fifth in the 5,000 meters, Eda Karesin placed second in the javelin, Katerina Stefanidi placed third in the pole vault, and Whitney Liehr placed fifth in the triple jump.
