AUSTIN — Two former Canyon teammates were among the 19 Longhorn track and field athletes to be named All-Americans following the 2019 outdoor championships in Austin.

University of Texas senior Alex Rogers was a first team selection after posting a top-eight finish in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Longhorn sophomore Sam Worley was an All-America second team choice in the 1,500 meters.

The Texas men’s program secured their most first team All-Americans (five) in the outdoor season since 2015, with four earning a top-eight finish for the first time in their career — Rogers, Micaiah Harris, Jonathan Jones and O’Brien Wasome.

On the women’s side, 10 different Longhorns earned top 24 finishes, including five that had individual first team runs or were members of the 4x100 relay team (eighth place). Senior Teahna Daniels led the way with three first team All-America runs in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay, finishing her career with six first team honors.
