The Southeastern Conference announced the 2024 first and second all-conference teams for men’s and women’s track and field on Tuesday. The Alabama Crimson Tide program had nine of its athletes represented on three of its teams.

On the Alabama women’s team, Doris Lemngole and Hilda Olemomoi were named First Team All-SEC. For the Alabama men’s team, Victor Kiprop, Tarsis Orogot and Chris Robinson were named First Team All-SEC, while Carson Burian, Corde Long, Khaleb McRae and Samuel Ogazi were named Second Team All-SEC.

Lemngole took first place in the 3,000-meter steep chase and set a meet and university record by finishing in 9:28.21, winning the event for the first time in school history. Her second-place finish in the 5,000 meters earned the L for the Women’s Commissioner’s Trophy, awarded to the athlete who scored the most individual points at the SEC Championships.

Olemomoi won the 10,000 meters with a time of 33:47.19, securing the first SEC gold medal of her career.

Kiprop won his third gold medal in the 10,000 meters by finishing in 29:36.95, becoming the first SEC athlete to win three straight golds in the event.

Orogot set numerous records in the men’s 200-meter dash by finishing in 19.75 seconds to claim gold in the event. Robinson won the men’s 400-meter hurdles by finishing in 48.43 seconds and was also part of Alabama’s second-place 4×400-meter relay team. The relay team completed the event in 2:59.06.

Men’s Golf: Chapel Hill NCAA Regional in Chapel Hill, NC

Crimson Tide results:

Men’s golf: The Alabama men’s team was only able to play about 40 minutes of the third round at the NCAA Chapel Hill Regional on Tuesday due to inclement weather. The regional schedule was rearranged due to the threat of severe weather this week, causing teams to play the first and second rounds on Monday. The Crimson Tide was able to complete both rounds Monday, but not every team did, meaning several teams were on the course at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday to wrap up the second round action. The third round started at 10 a.m., but the Crimson Tide was only able to play a few holes before the weather halted play and suspended the third round.

The Tide resumes play in seventh place with a 7-under par 553 (276-277), four shots behind fifth. The third round resumes Wednesday at 6:30 a.m. CT.
