GENEVA, Ohio – Earlham College senior Aishat Sadiq earned a spot on the podium with an eighth-place finish in Saturday's women's 100m finals, at the 2019 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the SPIRE Institute.
Sadiq ran a time of 12.00 seconds in Saturday's finals, running into a moderate (+2.4 m/second) wind.
"Aishat accomplished her goal at each step – she made NCAAs, made finals, became an All-American, and along the way inspired us all," said Rob and Claire Hewitt, Earlham's co-head coaches for track & field and cross country. "She has left her mark and changed us and our program for the better."
Sadiq is the second Earlham women's track and field athlete to earn U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division III All-America honors. She joins Sara Bohall, who accomplished the feat at the 2008 NCAA outdoor meet with a fourth-place finish in the 400m hurdles. Overall, Sadiq is the fourth Earlham athlete in either men's or women's track to earn All-America honors.
