High Point Scorers for 2014 Division II Indoor Championships Recognized
NEW ORLEANS – Danielle Williams of Johnson C. Smith, DeJon Wilkinson of St. Augustine’s and Lamar Hargrove of Tiffin have been officially named the High Point Scorers at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships held in Winston-Salem, N.C., from March 14-15.
Each year the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) recognizes the top individual scorers at the Division II national championship meets. In addition to the team points earned through individual events, points earned in relays were split four ways.
The women’s honor went to Williams with 30 points, while Wilkinson and Hargrove both scored 20 points to split the men’s award.
Williams, a senior from St. Andrew, Jamaica, became the first woman in Division II indoor history to win three individual track events at the same championships, sweeping the titles both at 60 and 200 meters and in the 60-meter hurdles.
Wilkinson, a senior from Summerville, S.C., took home titles in both of the horizontal jumping events, claiming national crowns in the triple jump and the long jump.
Hargrove, a frosh from Cincinnati, Ohio, dashed to a sweep of the short sprints with titles both at 60 and 200 meters.
