Burnett Claims All-American Second Team Honors At NCAA Indoor Championships

Alicia Burnett

BOSTON, Mass. — Alicia Burnett capped off her breakout 2024 indoor campaign for University of Missouri track and field with an All-American Second Team finish Friday at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. The junior notched a 12th-place result in the women’s 60m with a 7.29 sprint at The TRACK at New Balance in Boston, Massachusetts.

With her result, Burnett became the first Mizzou sprinter (male or female, indoor or outdoor) to claim an All-American position at the NCAA Championships since Markesh Woodson and Kahmari Montgomery secured placements in the 100m and 400m, respectively, at the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Burnett, a native of St. Louis, Missouri, enjoyed one of the finest seasons by a Tiger sprinter in the last decade. She qualified for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the DeLoss Dodds Invitational on Feb. 2 with a sprint of 7.21 in the women’s 60m. The mark shattered the previous program record of 7.31 held by LaQuisha Jackson for nine years.

Throughout the indoor season, Burnett hit five runs in the 60m which broke Jackson’s old record. After the 2024 indoor campaign, she holds spots in the program’s top-10 list in every sprints event — holding the No. 1 spot in the women’s 60m, the No. 4 mark in the women’s 200m and the No. 6 rank in the women’s 400m.


Sterling Scott will represent Mizzou in the men’s triple jump at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships tomorrow, Saturday, March 9, at The TRACK at New Balance in Boston, Massachusetts. The event starts at 2:30 p.m. CT and will stream on ESPN+.
