ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-Northwest Missouri State sophomore Tyler Shaw made it three Bearcat All-Americans after placing sixth in the 60-meter dash Saturday at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championship Meet hosted by Adams State.

Shaw is the sixth Bearcat to earn All-America honors in back-to-back seasons and the first to do so since E.J. Falkner finished third and sixth in the 200-meter dash in 2005 and 2006, respectively.

Shaw equaled his preliminary time of 8.08s in the final. His career-best time of 8.06s netted him second place at last year's national championship meet.

Pittsburg State's Jeremy Jackson won the title with a time a 7.83s. Abilene Christian's Andrew McDowell was second with a time of 7.85s.

Shortly after the 60-meter hurdle event, Bearcat freshman Angela Adams placed ninth in the 5,000-meter run. Adams finished in a time of 17:30.31, less than two seconds behind Morgan Place of Minnesota-Duluth.

Adams ran 17:02.34 in finishing second at the MIAA championship meet two weeks ago. In a slower-paced race, Shippensburg's Neely Spence won in 17:19.98, winning a final sprint against Tanya Zeferjahn of Queens, who finished in 17:21.42. Missouri Southern's Kimi Shank, the MIAA champion, placed sixth with a time of 17:26.49.

Shaw joined Northwest seniors Ben McKim and Emily Churchman in earning All-America honors Saturday. McKim took fourth in the shot put while Churchman placed fifth in the pentathlon.
