FIU's Clarissa Cutliff wins second All-America honor




Florida International University track and field standout Clarissa Cutliff ended her 2018 season by earning her second All-America honor of the year, and the fourth-straight of her collegiate career, when she was named Honorable Mention All-America by the U.S. 

 Track and Field and Cross-Country Coaches Association. Cutliff earned the honor following her appearance in the NCAA Championships, on June 9, in Eugene, Oregon. For the second-straight year, Cutliff was the Panthers' last student-athlete standing as the three-time defending Conference USA champion, and school-record-holder in the event. It marks her second appearance at the championships. 

 She won the 2018 C-USA title with a mark of 1.84m, just shy of her own school record of 1.85m set at the University of Miami Hurricane Collegiate Invitational in April. Cutliff has been dominant in the event this season, having finished on the top of the podium in all five meets she has competed in.
