Senior Arielle Shaw of the Oglethorpe women's track and field team took NCAA Division III outdoor track and field All-South/Southeast Region honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Sunday night. It marked her fourth career outdoor USTFCCCA All-Region honor, and her eighth career All-Region accolade counting the four she's also earned for indoor track and field.
As with the previous seven, Shaw earned her 2019 outdoor All-Region award in her signature triple jump. She posted a season-best leap of 38 feet, 6.75 inches May 10 at the Falcon Finale in Montevallo, Alabama. That tied her for the 21st-best mark in all of Division III and qualified her for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships for the third time in her four seasons. It served as the second-best leap in the South/Southeast region over the course of the season.
The top five individuals in each event in each region earned All-Region accolades, totaling 964 athletes on the women's side in 2019.
Shaw will compete in the national meet at the Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio, Saturday at 1:45 p.m.
