NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Fredonia State's latest men's track and field All-American is senior Spencer Lefort (Java Center/Pioneer).
Lefort moved up two places to finish seventh Saturday in the men's heptathlon at the 2013 NCAA Division III Track & Field championship meet at North Central College.
The top eight finishers earned All-American recognition.
Lefort began his day with a time of 8.85 seconds on the 60-meter hurdles to earn 779 points. He then cleared 4.10 meters (14' 5.25") in the pole vault for another 645 points, and finished the competition with a 2:47.16 in the 1,000-meter run for 796 points.
The 2,220 points on the day added to the 2,619 points he had after four events Friday gave him a two-day total of 4,839.
Eric Larson, a sophomore from Central College, won the event with 5,277 points.
It is the fourth straight year Fredonia State men's track has had at least one All-American. The two most recent are middle distance runner Nick Guarino (2010, 2011) and pole vaulter Broncho Rollins (2013).
Fredonia State has had at least one All-American in 25 different seasons dating back to 1976.
