Graber, Ziskovsky Earn All-America Honors for Central Track Squads

Two more athletes from Central College earned All-America honors Saturday at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships in Greencastle, Indiana. Thrower Matt Graber from the men’s team and pentathlete Jill Ziskovsky from the women’s squad joined Ethan Miller in collecting All-America plaques at the two-day event. Graber’s throw in the shot put sailed 54 feet, 9.5 inches – almost a foot farther than his previous best – shattering his own record at Central.

Jill Ziskovsky set or equalled personal bests in two of the five pentathlon events and secured a fifth place finish for her second career All-America citation. The Central College Track and Field teams will open the outdoor season at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, on March 26th.
