Juanita Webster-Freeman, Indiana Tech: 2023 NAIA Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Field Athlete of the Year

Juanita Webster-Freeman was named the National Women’s Field Athlete of the Year for the 2023 NAIA Indoor Track & Field season. Webster-Freeman, who hails from Redlands, California, dominated the field events all season long. Her prowess culminated in a record-breaking pentathlon at the 2023 NAIA Indoor Track & Field Championships, where she scored 4258 points to shatter both the meet record and national record held by Akela Jones. Webster-Freeman wasn’t done there, though. The California native also finished third in the shot put and fourth in both the high jump and long jump to give Indiana Tech more than 30 team points.
