USTFCCCA names four NGU athletes to women's All-Region team

NEW ORLEANS, LA. — The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced the All-Region honorees for the 2016 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field season on Wednesday.

To be named All-Region, an athlete must either be ranked in the top-five of an individual event in the region according to final TFRRS data or be part of a top-three relay team.

Conference Carolinas had 58 individuals, 34 men and 24 women, receive southeast all-region honors. Of the 58, 15 men received all-region honors in multiple events, while seven women received multiple all-region recognition.

The women’s team set a school record with four honorees, including Leah Austin, Georgia Delts, Ambria Shaw, and Shekindah Wilder. Austin, Delts, Shaw, and Wilder were honored for their performances in the 4x400 relay while Wilder added a second All-Region nod for her performance in the triple jump.

For North Greenville, Terry Davis, Stanley Limoh, and Kreig Lowe represent the men’s team. Davis earned two nods in the triple and long jump while Limoh and Lowe earned their honors in the 800-meter and shot put.
