BRIDGEWATER, Mass. – Bridgewater State University senior Jayci Andrews (Plymouth, Mass.) was officially named an NCAA Division III Women’s Indoor Track & Field All-American on Monday (Mar. 11) by the United States Track & Field & Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
All-Americans for the 2019 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field season were officially announced by the USTFCCCA earlier today.
Athletes of member institutions who finished in the top-8 of their respective individual events and relays at the 2019 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships held this past weekend at the Reggie Lewis Center took home All-America honors.
Andrews captured the national title in the 60-meter hurdles as she posted a winning and school-record time of 8.68 seconds in the finals on Saturday afternoon. Andrews edged junior and top-seed Favor Ezewuzie of Wheaton College (Ill.) and sophomore Caira Watson-Haynes of Washington University. Ezewuzie (8.69) and Watson-Haynes (8.69) placed second and third, respectively.
Andrews, who broke her previous school mark of 8.70 seconds recorded at Friday's preliminaries, became the second NCAA national champion in BSU history as she joined former men’s track & field standout Chris Perry. Perry captured the national championship in the triple jump at the 2015 NCAA Division III Men's Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
Last spring, Andrews garnered USTFCCCA All-American accolades with a second place finish in the 100-meter hurdles at the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
