But it didn’t exactly come about the way Beadlescomb might have expected this season.
This year, Beadlescomb would be named to the team instead of having a chance to earn his way at the National Championships because of the pandemic that has left various affects on the world.
But even without the National Finals taking place, it was still a memorable season for the former Muskrats athlete.
He was the Big Ten Champion in the indoor 5,000 and also placed first (4:11.94) in the mile at the Simmons-Harvey Invitational (Jan. 18).
He won the 3000m event title with a personal best of 8:01.03 at the Power Five Invitational (Jan. 31-Feb. 1).
He set a new MSU school record in the 5000m with a time of 13:31.50 at the Iowa State Classic (Feb. 14-15), while also setting a new facility and meet record.
Beadlescomb became the 5000m Big Ten Champion with a time of 13:50.25 while leading the second-place medley relay team at the Big Ten Indoor Championships (Feb. 28-29).
Hear from Beadlescomb, the Blue Water Area’s newest All-American.
