Gray named All-American for second straight year

By Doug Fitzgerald published June 2, 2004

Tina Gray was named All-American for the second consecutive year, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs announced Wednesday.

Gray, a junior from Sand Creek High School in Colorado Springs, finished sixth Saturday in the 3.000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA Division II National Outdoor Track and Field Championships. She was also named All-American in the same event in 2003.

Gray is the first female to earn more than one All-American honor while at CU-Colorado Springs. Trent Briney and Moses Tum have also accomplished the feat.

Gray's performance is even more remarkable considering she spent most of the year battling injuries and illness. She came into nationals ranked No. 15.
