Nathan Bruno (Lenox, Mass.) made history on Saturday, April 25th in Wisconsin, when he became Emmanuel College's first-ever student-athlete to earn All-American honors in Track & Field. Bruno raced to a 6th place finish in the men's 400 meter hurdle finals at the NCAA Division III Track & Field National Championships, held at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.
Racing on the outside in lane nine, Bruno busted out of the blocks and held a sizable lead for three quarters of the race. The field made up the stagger in the final turn, but Bruno held on to top three of his eight competitors to take 6th place overall with a time of 52.43 and earn All-America honors.
