Baton Rouge, La. – The LSU track and field program had 21 athletes named U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Americans from the indoor season on Tuesday afternoon.

The LSU women had an NCAA-leading 12 women earn All-America awards alongside the Arkansas women, who had 12 as well. The LSU men had nine All-Americans. LSU’s 21 athletes combined for a total of 29 All-America awards, which ranked as the second most in the NCAA behind Arkansas’ 31.

Normal policies dictate that All-America honors are awarded based on classifications of performance at the NCAA Championships. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships, the NCAA Division I Track & Field Committee adopted the following criteria. Any individual that earned a spot at the national meet was named an All-American, and all individuals that were scheduled to compete as a member of a relay are All-Americans.
