EUGENE, Ore. Shelby Houlihan earned All-America honors at 1,500 meters as the Arizona State womens track and field team finished 10th at the 2013 NCAA outdoor championships on Saturday. The ASU men finished tied for 28th. Houlihan finished seventh overall in a stacked 1,500-meter race in a time of 4:14.95 in a race in which the first seven positions were separated by less than two seconds. With the result, Houlihan became the just the second Sun Devil to ever score at 1,500 meters in school history; Lisa Aguilera finished eighth in 2000. Houlihan set the school record in the event earlier this year and ran several races this season that were better than the previous school record held by Priscilla Hein. Anna Jelmini wrapped up her season with an 11th-place finish in the womens shot put, posting a best throw on the day of 16.34m (53-07.50). She earned second-team All-America accolades in the event just two days after becoming the NCAA individual champion in the discus. The ASU women finished the week with two national championships, tallying 28 points en route to the teams highest finish at the NCAA meet since taking third in 2009. It was the fifth top-10 finish in the last eight years for the women. The men finished the weekend with eight points, all of which came from Jordan Clarkes runner-up finish in the mens shot put on Wednesday. As a program, ASU finished the weekend with five first-team All-Americans and three second-team All-Americans as well as one second-team All-American relay squad. Kansas won the team championship on the womens side, while Texas A&M and Florida tied for the team championship on the mens side.
