Detloff, Foster make UND history at NCAA Indoor Championships

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (UND Athletics) -- History was made Saturday at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships with two UND athletes earning second team all-America status. Molli Detloff picked up her second career all-America honor (2018- outdoor) with her 11th place finish in the weight throw while Kyley Foster became the third in school history to garner all-America status in the Division I era as she tied for 10th in the pole vault.

Detloff, who qualified for the indoor meet with a toss of 21.99 meters, just missed out on finals Saturday, taking 11th with her throw Saturday of 20.66 meters (67'-9.50"). She was the highest finisher among mid-major schools as Ohio State senior won the event with a facility record 25.56-meter throw. The Elk River, Minn., product was just 0.32 meters shy of advancing to the finals flight.

Foster cleared the 4.16-meter opening height, helping her become an all-American for the first time in her standout career. The Detroit Lakes, Minn., product finished in a tie for 10th.

The pair will now prep for the upcoming outdoor season which is set to get underway this coming Thursday at the Incarnate Word Spring Break Invitational in San Antonio, Tex.
