Josh McDougal earned his fourth career All-American honors as the sophomore finished fourth in the 5,000 meters, Friday evening, at the first day of the NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championship held at the Randal Tyson Track Center.

McDougal finished fourth in the 5,000 meter race with a time of 13:55.85, while Arkansas' Josphat Boit won the event with a time of 13:49.93.

This marks the second indoor track and field All-American honor for McDougal as he finished fifth in the 3,000 meters at last year's NCAA Championship event, while he has also garnered All-American honors with two Top 15 finishes at the NCAA Cross Country Championships.

McDougal will have another chance to add to his already impressive resume as the sophomore will compete in the 3,000 meters at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championship on Saturday at approximately 7:50 p.m.
