HIGH POINT, N.C. – The North Greenville University duo of JJ Sherman and Adrian McGee have been named the Conference Carolinas Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Athletes of the Week, respectively, for meets held April 9 - 15, the conference announced today.
Sherman, a junior from Pawleys Island, S.C., produced two NCAA provisional qualifying marks at the Beynon Sports Catamount Classic. Sherman won the 100 meter dash in a new personal best time of 10.47 seconds, which is tied for the 11th-fastest time in Division II so far this season. He also teamed up with Harold Hilton, Jordan Walters, and Tevin Richardson to post a qualifying mark of 40.77 seconds in the 4x100 relay. That time is 6th on the descending order list, and leads both the conference and the Southeast region.
A freshman from Greer, S.C., McGee had a breakout meet in the long jump at the Beynon Sports Catamount Classic this past weekend.
