  10. I've seen this kid play several times, I honestly don't think we missed one here, unless he has improved 100 fold, he doesn't have a big 10 frame, he is a big fish in a small pond, now. He doesn't like to bang inside, lived outside the arc. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using BtownBanners mobile app

    Jun. 24, 2016 Track and Field Sydney Clute was named a second team Academic All-American by CoSIDA. She was one of 15 student-athletes selected on the women's side. Clute has already graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor's degree in Business Marketing. She is currently working towards a Master's degree in Tourism, Hospitality, and Event Management. Athletically, Sydney had a season filled with record breaking performances. She won the Big Ten Indoor Championships in the pole vault with a school record mark of 4.35m (14ft 3.25in). At the NCAA Championship meet she finished tenth, earning second team All-American honors. She followed that performance up by winning the Outdoor Big Ten Championships in May. In three consecutive jumps she broke three prestigious records. By clearing 4.31m she broke the Nebraska Outdoor Track Facility record. Her next clearance of 4.37m captured the new Big Ten Championships record. Her final mark of 4.42m (14ft 6in) earned her the outdoor school record. Clute took fourth in the outdoor NCAA Championships, achieving first team All-American honors. Clute becomes the 14th Academic All-American in program history and the first since Kelsie Ahbe earned first team honors in 2014.

    IU Track and Field

    Jun. 20, 2016 General BLOOMINGTON – Three Indiana University student-athletes will embark on a trip of a lifetime this summer to Vietnam as part of the Coach for College program. Amanda Cahill (women's basketball), Paul Galas (track and field) and Maddie Pierce (rowing) will take part in the program for IU. Coach for College is a service learning program where student-athletes from the United States partner with Vietnamese university students to teach academics, sports and life skills at summer camps to disadvantaged children in rural Vietnam. This will be the second-straight year in which IU Athletics has had student-athlete representatives as part of the program. Any Indiana student-athlete was able to apply for the opportunity to participate in the Coach for College trip. The application hit on topics such as the importance of education, how service connects to the overall goals in life, feelings about working in a diverse culture and what life lessons or experiences they would like to obtain from the trip. The candidates were then chosen by a group of staff within IU Athletics' Excellence Academy as representatives from academics, leadership and life skills and Hoosiers Helping Hoosiers reviewed the list of applicants. IU graduate and former volleyball standout Courtney Harnish, who participated as a student-athlete in the program last summer is returning again in 2016 on her own as a director. "Coach for College is a fantastic experience for any student-athlete," Harnish said. "Besides stepping out of your comfort zone and learning about a new beautiful culture, one learns the importance of giving back and humility. I couldn't have asked for a more life changing experience. "I am lucky to be going back as a director and am so excited to watch other student-athletes learn more about the Vietnamese culture but also grow as individuals. I am most looking forward to seeing the Vietnamese children, who have the greatest hearts. But also sharing my knowledge and experience in order to help the newcomers adjust and fall in love with the country, just as I did." The program was founded in the fall of 2007 by Parker Goyer, a former women's tennis student-athlete at Duke. Coach for College hopes to use sports to help motivate children in developing countries to pursue higher education while developing leadership skills, learning in the classroom and playing sports. It aims to support students in grades 6-9 in rural communities around the world in increasing their motivation to take advantage of higher educational opportunities by using sports to generate excitement about learning. In turn, Coach for College is a chance for student-athletes from the U.S. to gain leadership, teaching and coaching skills to be a positive influence during the trip, but also to help mold them upon their return to use these skills to make a difference in their communities. It also serves as an opportunity for student-athletes to make a positive impact on the world with social change while having the commitment to making higher education a more realistic option for those around the world who currently don't have the resources to take advantage of it. IU's student-athlete representatives will embark on their journey beginning next week. Pierce will leave on June 22 and return July 18 as Cahill and Galas will take their trip from July 20 through August 15. All three will be working with kids at different schools.

    IU Track and Field

    EUGENE, Ore. – The Hoosiers return to Bloomington with a quartet of accolades after a successful NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field. Four Indiana athletes – Sydney Clute (pole vault), Daniel Kuhn (800m), Nakel McClinton (hammer throw), and Willie Morrison (shot put) – achieved All-American status with their outstanding finishes in their respective events. "All five athletes represented IU with extreme class and pride," said Indiana track & field head coach Ron Helmer. "I couldn't be more proud of them." Leading the way for Indiana were Clute and McClinton, who garnered first team All-American accolades on the second day of events. Clute earned a fourth-place finish in the women's pole vault final, and McClinton's mark in the women's hammer throw final yielded a seventh-place podium finish. "We had four outstanding performances this weekend, led by veterans Sydney and Nakel," said Helmer. "Both had solid performances, and when outstanding athletes are solid, good things always happen." Clute achieved her best-ever finish at an NCAA meet by taking fourth-place in the women's pole vault final. On a rain-soaked afternoon in the infield of Historic Hayward Field, Clute pulled into the top ten after her second-attempt clearance at 4.20m. The Greenwood, Indiana native sealed her final ranking with a clearance at 4.30m on her first attempt. McClinton also notched the best NCAA finish of her career in the women's hammer throw final, earning seventh-place. The junior steadily increased her distance over her three attempts in the preliminary round, ending with a best throw of 62.91m. The mark pushed McClinton into the final round, and the distance held for the seventh-furthest in the field. The All-American finish in this event is fitting for McClinton, as she holds the Indiana University record in the hammer throw (65.12m). Indiana found promising success from a pair of underclassmen in the men's events from Kuhn and Morrison. After qualifying for their first NCAA Championships in Jacksonville two weeks prior, both received second team All-American honors in their respective events. "Daniel and Willie performed well enough in their first NCAA Championship meet to earn second team All-American honors, and both are committed to coming back and making their mark in the future," Helmer said, optimistic in his first-year thrower and his second-year middle distance runner. "Both are young guys with many opportunities to perform at this level. Kuhn kicked off Indiana's week in Eugene, Oregon in the first heat of the 800m semifinals. The sophomore kept pace, and ended 0.3 seconds away from his career best, to take a fifth-place finish in his heat. Kuhn just missed the cut for the national finals, posting the ninth-fastest time in the field at 1:47.20. Morrison, a true freshman, capped a sensational first year with an All-American finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. He continued his career-best success from the NCAA East Regionals with a 16th-place finish in Wednesday's men's shot put final. The Leavenworth, Kansas native made the most of his first throw attempt, reaching a distance of 18.69m. It was the third-highest finish by any freshman in the men's side of the event.

    IU Track and Field

    EUGENE, Ore. – With the conclusion of the Indiana track & field team's men's action on Wednesday, three Hoosiers entered Historic Hayward field for the women's events on Thursday evening. In the women's pole vault final, Sydney Clute earned her second selection to the All-American first team with a fourth-place finish. Junior Nakel McClinton ascended to first team NCAA All-American status with a seventh-place finish in the women's hammer throw final. "I'm excited right now," McClinton said after stepping away from the podium. "It's extra special to achieve this after being unable to achieve that in the indoor season. It hasn't really set in just how huge this is, but today was a great day." McClinton was the first athlete in action for the Hoosiers on Thursday, kicking off the first flight of the women's hammer throw finals. After throwing her first mark of 57.20m, McClinton improved on her next two throws. The junior reached 61.20m on her second attempt, and followed with a final distance of 62.91m. McClinton's final throw in the first flight was 4.03m further than her best mark at the NCAA East Regionals. The mark clinched a spot in the final round for McClinton, as she achieved the seventh-furthest distance in the field. "It was nerve-racking waiting for the second flight to finish," said McClinton. "But I was ecstatic when I realized I advanced to the final round." In the final round of the women's hammer throw, McClinton was unable to increase her best distance but amassed a pair of solid attempts. The junior notched distances of 62.28m and 61.65m on her first and third attempts of the final round, respectively. McClinton received her first selection to the All-American first team after holding on to seventh-place. Laura Schroeder, in the second flight of competitors, achieved a best throw of 59.11m (193' 11"). The mark earned Schroeder an 18th-place finish in the field. Clute spared the dramatics at the first increment, 4.05m, by clearing on her first attempt. She followed that with a second-attempt clearance at 4.20m. After a swift clearance at 4.30m, Clute was one of five remaining in the competition. With the rain falling on the pole vault pit at Hayward field, three of the five remaining competitors passed on the height of 4.35m. Clute was one of the two who opted to take the vault. As close as she came on her third and final attempt, Clute bowed out at 4.35m. Clute improves from her eighth-place finish at the 2014 Outdoor Championships, where she cleared a height of 4.15m, to take fourth-place with a final clearance of 4.30m.
