Lee University’s Jessica Childers has been chosen for the NCCAA Women’s Track Student-Athlete of the Week Award for the week of March 24 for her performance at the Emory Invitational.
Childers ran an NCCAA-qualifying time of 2:20.63 in the 800-meter run to finish seventh in a field of primarily NCAA Division I and Division II programs. She eclipsed the standard (2:25.00) by nearly five seconds, and holds the sixth-fastest time in the NCCAA this season.
The Lee track-and-field squads will travel to Rome, Ga., on Saturday for the Shorter Relays. The all-day event will be held at Barron Stadium.
