SHAW HAS FIVE NAMED USTFCCCA ALL-REGION

RALEIGH, N.C. Five members of the Shaw University women's outdoor track and field team have been recognized by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Associations (USTFCCCA) as All-Atlantic Region Award winners.

 

The top-5 individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region distinction, in addition to each of the members of the regions' top-3 relay teams. The regions used for this award – Atlantic, Central, East, Midwest, South, South Central, Southeast and West – match those used during the indoor track & field season.

 

Junior La'Cherie Clarke was named All-Region in a pair of events that included the 100-meter and 200-meter dash while sophomore Tiarra Derosa (Sandy's, Bermuda) and sophomore Laquel Harris (Nassau, Bahamas) were both named All-Region in the discus. Freshman Tyefah Saunders (Kingston, Jamaica) tabbed All-Region in the shot put while sophomore Kaydi-Ann Wint (Kingston, Jamaica) garnered All-Region in the 800-meter run.

 

For the second-consecutive year, Shaw has had athletes make the All-Region Team under the leadership of head coach Nadia Alexander-Pompey. The Lady Bears had two athletes last season in Destinee Williams (100-meter dash) and Derosa (discus).
