The Lady Bears have nine returning athletes from a season ago, a Shaw squad that finished fourth at the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Championships behind eight podium performances and three event titles. Notable returners for Shaw include junior Kaydi-Ann Wint (Kingston, Jamaica), Laquel Harris (Nassau, Bahamas), La'Cherie Clarke (Raleigh, NC) and Kyla Sanders (Hampton, VA) who all performed well at the conference championships a year ago. Clarke won the gold medal in the CIAA's 100-meter race while Wint claimed the 800-meter title during last year's run.
