Running his second race in as many days at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships, Liberty senior Josh McDougal finished sixth in Saturday's 3,000-meter final. His finish was good for the 14th All-America notation of his career.

McDougal (Peru, N.Y.) led for a number of laps, just as he had during Friday's 5,000-meter race. However, his 8:03.77 effort left him in sixth place at the finish line, three seconds behind race winner Kyle Alcorn of Arizona State.

For McDougal, the All-America distinction was his fourth career honor at the 3,000-meter distance indoors. He placed third in the event last season.

As a team, the Flames tied Notre Dame for 36th place, totaling seven points. Arizona State swept the men's and women's team national championships.
