PITTSBURGH (WIBW) - For the second time in his career, Washburn standout Jacob Klemz is an All-American runner.

The Hayden High School alumnus finished 29th out of 261 runners at the NCAA Division II National Championships on Saturday morning. That is the highest nationals finish in program history.

Klemz last claimed All-American honors during his freshman year, when he finished 58th to become the first Ichabod runner to ever be an All-American. He finished 32nd last year, meaning he's improved each season.
