Terre Haute, Ind. - DePauw senior Noah Droddy wrapped up an outstanding collegiate cross country career by notching his second consecutive all-America honor after finishing eighth amongst the 280-runner field at the NCAA Division III Championships at the LaVerne Gibson Course.

Droddy was in 11th at the three-kilometer split and 14th at the 5K mark, but surged ahead in the final 3,000 meters to finish in 24:44.6.

"I was happy with the race," Droddy said. "I felt like I ran smart and am very happy that  I ended my cross country career on a good note."

Droddy also earned all-America honors at the 2011 Championships by finishing ninth and earned a spot as a sophomore, placing 68th.

"A top-10 finish is special," DePauw head coach Kori Stoffregen said.

"To do it two years in a row is unbelievable. It has been so fun to coach him"
