Johnson earns All-American status for Cedarville


PITTSBURG, Kan. — Jaden Johnson placed eighth in the 400 meter final to gain additional All-America honors at the NCAA Division II Men’s Indoor Track & Field Championship.

He was clocked in 48.08 seconds at the Robert W. Plaster Center at Pittsburg State University.

The top eight places in all events are considered NCAA All-Americans.

Johnson ran the third-fastest time in program history in the final after turning in a 48.41 effort in the prelims – No. 4 on the Jackets’ Top 10 list.

CU won an appeal that he was impeded during the preliminary race and thus Johnson was awarded a spot in the final.

On Friday, Johnson was part of the distance medley relay unit that finished seventh for All-America recognition.

He was joined by Braedon Killion, Caleb Sultan, and Ramen Felumlee to post a time of 9:52.03 which ranks No. 5 at Cedarville.

It’s the second time the Yellow Jackets have had a DMR squad grab All-America accolades with the other coming in 2017.
