NEW ORLEANS – Shauna-Kay Creary has earned the USTFCCCA Division II Female National Athlete of the Week distinction for her performance on Saturday at the inaugural East Coast Conference Championship meet.
Creary (Accounting – Kingston, Jamaica/St. Andrew HS) played a key role in ensuring the University of the District of Columbia came away winners of the team title. She competed in five events and scored 42 of the team's 151 points.
She claimed victory in the Long Jump on her final attempt (18-11/5.77M) while simultaneously competing in the High Jump for the first time this season, which she won at 5-6 (1.68M). She then rushed from the High Jump mat straight to the 60 trials and would secure her place in the 60 Finals. Back to the pit she went, competing in the Triple Jump with tired legs, but pulling out all the stops to finish runner-up with a mark of 37-11 ¼ (11.56M). She had a short rest before heading back to the finals of the 60 where she finished 3rd with a time of 7.85 seconds, narrowly missing the win with the runner-up running 7.84 and the winner running 7.83. Her whirlwind of a day ended in the 200 where she finished runner-up in a time of 25.86 seconds.
