Bob Keogh Becomes Temple Track & Field's First All-American Since 1994

DES MOINES, Iowa - With a lifetime-best throw of 63.66 meters (208-10) in the men's hammer throw at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, senior Bob Keogh placed 13th overall to earn All-American second team honors. Keogh's run at the championships is now over, as only the top nine advanced to the finals in the event.

"To come in and give a lifetime best effort, that's what it's all about," said head coach Eric Mobley. "Tim Boeni started off this tradition of earning a spot in the NCAA Championships last year, and now Bob and Travis (Mahoney) are continuing that tradition."

Elliott Gaskins (800m) was the last All-American for the men's track and field team at Temple back in 1994. Of the five who have earned the honor all-time, Gaskins was the only other besides Keogh to not be a member of a relay team. The last female to earn All-American for Temple in track and field was over two decades ago, in 1988.

Mahoney will compete in the finals of the 3,000-meter steeplechase for Temple on Friday at 8:30 p.m. (EST). Live results are updated continuously at http://www.ncaa.com/content/di-outdoor-track-field-live-results.
