evans-acNAPERVILLE, ILL. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior Liz Evans (Bicknell/North Knox) earned her seventh career All-American award by finishing third in the high jump at the NCAA Division III Indoor National Championships on Saturday at North Central College.

Evans tied 2012 graduate Sutton Coleman for Rose-Hulman's career school record with seven All-American honors.  She will have the opportunity to compete in one more NCAA Division III National Championship event this May.

Evans cleared 5' 6 1/2" on her first attempt to join four vaulters at the 5' 7 3/4" height.  She was awarded a tie for third place by virtue of recording no misses until her final height.

With the third-place finish, Evans career totals include seven All-American awards with four first-place efforts (2011 Indoors and Outdoors; 2012 Indoors and Outdoors), two national runner-up performances (2010 Indoors and Outdoors) and one third-place finish (2013 Indoors).

Evans has also earned four NCAA Division III Great Lakes Region Athlete of the Year awards and five Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year honors throughout her decorated career.

The mathematics and electrical engineering double major has also earned Capital One Academic All-American honors in 2011 (first team) and 2010 (second team).  Rose-Hulman's track and field history now includes 48 All-American awards.
