At the NCAA Indoor Championships, Steinforth captured third place in the heptathlon with 6140 points and seventh place in the long jump with a 25-10 (7.87m). At the Big Ten Indoor Championships, Steinforth went a personal-best 26-2 3/4 (7.99m) on his final attempt of the long jump to win the title and move up to a tie for fourth in school history.

This marks the third year in a row a Husker has won the Big Ten Men's Indoor Field Athlete of the Year honor, with Jonah Wilson named the unanimous selection in 2023 and Burger Lambrechts Jr. earning the distinction in 2022.

Congrats to coach St. Clair!
"The Nebraska men's track and field program earned two USTFCCCA Midwest Region awards on Thursday. Justin St. Clair was named the Midwest Region Men's Coach of the Year and junior heptathlete and long jumper Till Steinforth was named the Midwest Region Men's Field Athlete of the Year."

"St. Clair, in his second year as head coach, led eight Husker men and nine entries to the NCAA Indoor Championships. Nebraska earned five First-Team All-America honors on the men's side and tied for 12th in the team standings. At the Big Ten Indoor Championships, the men finished second and crowned three Big Ten Champions. St. Clair specializes in the throws, where NU scored 20 team points at the conference meet between the shot put and weight throw. Throughout the season, 13 athletes have moved up on Nebraska's all-time list.

The last time a Nebraska head coach won this honor was when Gary Pepin received the award after the 2019 indoor season."
